An example that should work but does not seem to be working.

`![Battle between pavement ant colonies on sidewalk, May 2019, Mount Vernon, Washington, US](https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Pavement_ant#/media/File:Pavement_ants_battling_on_sidewalk.jpg)`

![Battle between pavement ant colonies on sidewalk, May 2019, Mount Vernon, Washington, US](https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Pavement_ant#/media/File:Pavement_ants_battling_on_sidewalk.jpg)

Remove '!' and the link works
