Both background and body image can't be displayed/seen.

I inserted url links to background from an image search i found on the web but all i get is a white screen, the same with image src link...what could i be doing wrong?

body {
        background: url("http://www.bing.com/images/search?q=sunflower+fields&id=F5A863E29C5402E1FD92B60D754FE2AD4EA71264&FORM=IQFRBA#view=detail&id=95E31161B4F6CB8DE03E9618C8C8756AF4D71FE8&selectedIndex=21");

and this is the image src code:

<body>
<img src="http://www.bing.com/images/search?q=vanessa+ocas&id=0BBE668E64B92E4F5E30CDE4B6F831B0EEACA745&FORM=IQFRBA#view=detail&id=A542F1353EF10126B1E52880AB55CFCFB55BEF43&selectedIndex=23" height="250" width="250">

The problem with those links is that they take you to web pages not to image files.

The URL for the first image is actually http://www.wallpaperish.com/wp-content/uploads/2013/08/Sunflower-Field-2.jpg

The second URL should be https://fbcdn-profile-a.akamaihd.net/hprofile-ak-prn2/t1/c21.0.160.160/p160x160/1380234_3444119078387_1894962774_n.jpg
