An update to the prevous accordion gallery using the latest CSS3 'flexbox' styling.

Just hover any of the thumbnail images to see it enlarge to full size with smooth animation. I have incorporated a small delay in the transitions so that you can quickly scan the images without triggering the zoom.

Unfortunately IE10 and IE11 do not yet support transisitions on flexbox flex values so I have had to resort to pixel sizing and use an @media query to slectively target these two browsers.

Again Safari needs to catch up with its support for 'flexbox' styling.
