Plugin Description :
 
*Garee's Flickr Feed* is a highly customizable Wordpress-plugin that integrates pictures from flickr on your blog.
The output is generated from template-files or your own templates, which you can write with Mustache.

For more information check out the official [plugin-site](http://www.garee.ch/wordpress/garees-flickr-feed/)


Main-advantages:

* Flickr-requests are cached
* CSS only included if shortcode found on page
* highly customizable with Mustache-templates

Just insert the shortcode anywhere on your blog: `[flickr_feed]`

Use shortcode-options to further customize which content and how they should be displayed. Check out the examples on the [live-demo](http://www.garee.ch/wordpress/garees-flickr-feed/live-demo/)
