I just noticed this today. On one snippet there are now six images that can be scrolled horizontally. I guess this will dilute traffic somewhat between sites.
Even better reason to have a standout image?
Were the images from different sites? I have not seen that. I have had Google select some of my lists of dog breeds and include images from each breed above the text of the list.
Yes, I have the snippet for "How to Sow Seeds" if you want to check it out.
Edit: Three of the six images are for the same webpage. Also clicking on an image brings you to image search rather than the website.
None of them from your Dengarden article, however, and you have a lot of useful images on that article. Do you think they are trying to pick images from a different source, not the snippet?
How is the load time for that article? The other day when I went on analytics I found the load time for one article was very slow, but it has the same amount of photos as my other articles,. Any ideas?
The one with the yellow dotted ring is mine, but maybe they gave you a different selection of images? I've found that sometimes the image changes on that snippet and others. It can be from the same article as the text link in the snippet, or from a different page which is a bit confusing for readers.
Don't know about load time, haven't checked. Presumably it depends on the readers Internet connection speed? What I really need to do sometime is go over all the hubs, download images, compress them and reupload. The pixel resolution can be maintained, but images can be greatly reduced in bite size.

Is this a bug or am I tying with Briggs for a featured snippet? It seems odd. The picture can be clicked and leads to DenGarden
