Woolly124, you can either use an imaging hosting site such as Imgur, to upload your pics. There you will have an option to create a link. Copy link, and paste it on here.

Or if you have Google Photo's, you can hit on a picture there. Underneath the pucture you hit on the share icon.When you hit on that, you will see option to create a link. Hit that and it automatically copy's the link. Come back on here and paste link. Job done

If you stopped because of that you wouldn't be out at all I was out today and got 3/4 grown ones must be about two months old, disease will do far more damage than catching a milky doe,you can always release them again if their alive.
