Let me see if this doc looks good, and whether it seamlessly forms part of my post.

Inserting a dummy image of dimensions 640 x 480 here:

Colebrookia oppositifolia sighted at Lavasa near Pune on February 26, 2012 at 2.11pm

I prefer to change default page of A4 to A3 — it helps me insert at least 2 images on the first page itself.

This change can be easily done as one would do in WORD doc. Go to File > Page setup… and do the needful in the settings.

Let me add another view of Colebrookia oppositifolia sighted at same place and time:

I am trying to identify this shrub seen near Thulo Dhungga beside the Budhi Gandaki at an altitude of about 1300 metres (4265 feet) on 20th March 2017.  Unfortunately, I didn’t get any more photographs.  I was quite common in this valley and also that of the Marsyandi Khola at a similar altitude.  Any help would be appreciated.
