Idioms in Pictures

In the spoken and written English of today, idiom is an established, universal and essential element which, when used with care, ornaments and enriches language. Here are a few Idioms that have been compiled in the book English Composition: Idioms . Since a picture speaks a thousand words, I have added images to this post to better grasp the meaning of each Idiom mentioned.
