Adding image to a post with flickr url, why doesn't it work?

  1. I'm trying to add an image to my post taking the url from an image I've in my flickr account but wordpress doesn't accept the url (http://flic.kr/p/8J5NeM). Why?
    Blog url: http://madhaiblog.wordpress.com/

  2. Because you're using the URL of the page instead of the actual image URL. This is the right URL:
    http://farm5.staticflickr.com/4085/5070726199_36264657a7_z.jpg
    (Or with a different letter instead of z, depending on the size you need.)

    But the best practice is to insert images you upload from your computer to your blog, after you have downsized them to the desired width in an image editing application.
