Removing and adding Images (JAVA)

I have the following in main:

            JFrame f = new JFrame();
            f.addWindowListener(new WindowAdapter()
            {
                  public void windowClosing(WindowEvent e)
                  {
                        System.exit(0);
                  }
            });
            f.setSize(600, 600);
            f.setLayout(new FlowLayout());

            JPanel imgPanel =  new JPanel();
            imgPanel.add(new JLabel(new ImageIcon("compass.jpg")));
            f.add(imgPanel);
            
            f.setVisible(true);
            /***********/
            try{Thread.sleep(3000);}catch(Exception e){}
                  imgPanel.removeAll();
                  f.repaint();
                  
                  try{Thread.sleep(3000);}catch(Exception e){}
                  imgPanel.add(new JLabel(new ImageIcon("compass.jpg")));
                  f.add(imgPanel);
                  imgPanel.repaint();
                  f.repaint();


=========================
I want to remove and add the image again.
The code above removes the image BUT does not add it again.

Any Ideas
