Yahoo have started to include flickr photo results in Yahoo searches.

The announcement on the Yahoo search blog
http://www.ysearchblog.com/archives/000350.html

suggests searching for "funny photos" via http://search.yahoo.com/search?p=funny+photos

to see an example of the results

Oh, for the sake of a missing "r"...

http://search.yahoo.com/search?p=flick+photos

just grabs its results from Yahoo image search, not from flickr, and politely asks

Did you mean: flickr photos?

Yes I did!

This was bound to happen sooner or later.

I guess it's query dependent.

A search for smiling photos
http://search.yahoo.com/search?p=smiling+photos&prssweb=Search&ei=UTF-8&fr=FP-tab-web-t500&x=wrt
tosses inline results from Yahoo Images.

Pictures happy people
http://search.yahoo.com/search?p=pictures+happy+people&prssweb=Search&ei=UTF-8&fr=FP-tab-web-t500&x=wrt
Again, inline Yahoo Images.

Also, as mentioned in the blog post, Funny Photos returns Flickr images
http://search.yahoo.com/search?p=funny+photos

BUT funny images
http://search.yahoo.com/search?p=funny+images&prssweb=Search&ei=UTF-8&x=wrt

or

or terms inverted (photos funny)
http://search.yahoo.com/search?p=+photos+funny&prssweb=Search&ei=UTF-8&x=wrt

does not.
