Indigo Bunting (1st Day of Summer)
If you love an image (whether it's yours or someone else's) and want to make sure others get a chance to see it, you can “feature” it by choosing the “Spotlight” button.
When an image is Spotlighted, it receives enhanced visibility in premium spots throughout the site. Spotlighted images are rotated through these higher-visibility positions to ensure the best opportunity for the images to be seen by JPG users.
If you see a great photo that would make a perfect entry for one of our Shoot Out photo contests but it was uploaded by another user, now you can enter that photo in the contest and, if it wins, you get to share in the contest winnings.
Like a photo editor, if you've got an eye for great work, find it and submit it to a contest. If it wins, since you staked the entry fee, you'll take home part of the prize (the rest, of course, goes to the member who shot the image).
Collections are a JPG+ feature. You must be a JPG+ member to create new collections and to add photos to collections.

I will praise thee O Lord my God With all my heart: and I will glorify Thy name for ever more...Psalms 86: 12
God signs nature
Thru' all His birds
But the Indigo Bunting
Wears God's signature
And His words,
With name to glorify
"In God I go"
With wings to fly
In heaven's sky
Or e'en hunting
For food below.
Poetry by me AJP
This male Indigo Bunting is usually more blue but it is molting and losing some of his feathers. He sat very still on the edge of the feeder this morning for 10 minutes with his back turned gazing off into space. Maybe he was communicating with God to thank Him for it being the first day of summer:) It had been a cold spring here earlier and they are used to hotter weather where they migrate from.
