            <img src="images/cat4-600.jpg">
            <img src="images/cat5-600.jpg">
            <div class=cycle-pager">


            .cycle-slideshow  {
                width: 300px;
                height: 300px;
                border: 2px dashed #E5F6F5;;

            .cycle-pager {
                width: 100%;
                height: 50px;
                position: absolute;
                text-align: center;
                overflow: hidden;

            .cycle-pager span {
                width: 26px;
                height: 50px;
                display: inline-block;
                color: rgba(137,192,150,1);
                cursor: pointer;

            .cycle-pager span.cycle-pager-active {
                 color: rgba(255,147,104,0.7);
