    If you don't make an explicit request for an image (URL), LWP::UserAgent won't download the image. That's how HTTP works.

      Hi, thanks for your response. I'm trying to understand what is happening. From what you are saying contrary to viewing from a browser, it is unlikely that the delay is being caused by having to wait for images to download as there is no specific request - or is there?

      $resp = $ua->get(";

        Maybe now is a good moment to learn about HTTP, and the request-response mechanism?
