Is it possible to slow down the speed of the slide show here to a pace that allows readers to both read the captions and to look at the bird image, at least 3X the time the current setting allows or, alternatively, to click on an image to pause the slide show for the desired time and then click again to continue? Who wrote the captions? Thanks

Gorgeous shots, Larry! My husband & I saw a few oystercatchers last April near the Harbor View-- I'd never even heard of them before. Striking birds!
