Why does the google patent site show fewer drawings than listed in the patent

see this has 9 images of drawings: http://www.google.com/patents/USD678656

while the actual patent has much more - 21: http://patft1.uspto.gov/netacgi/nph-Parser?Sect1=PTO1&Sect2=HITOFF&d=PALL&p=1&u=%2Fnetahtml%2FPTO%2Fsrchnum.htm&r=1&f=G&l=50&s1=D678656.PN.&OS=PN/D678656&RS=PN/D678656

Just looked at it from my ipad,all 21 are there if you do the horizontal scrolling. –  George White Aug 10 '13 at 5:45
I think there are only 10 images - not 21 - even if you scroll –  nilanjan Aug 11 '13 at 7:45

My mistake - each 'page' can have multiple drawings. The images on both links show multiple drawings on a single page.
