Male Indigo Bunting
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).

A feast is made for laughter...For a bird of the air shall carry the voice, and that which hath wings shall tell the matter. Ecclesiastes 10: 19-20
The male Indigo Bunting,
A migratory bird
Carries beautiful word
In his transportation
Of God's creation.
He arrives in May...
Flying many miles
To do his hunting.
Here to feast
All summer at least.
Before he goes away,
He pays his dues
By leaving smiles
and e'en laughter
Bading us adieu
Waving wings of blue
In time e'er after!
Poetry by me AJP
I shot this picture May 25, 2009...I know I am jumping the season.
It is still winter here ...and I can hardly wait until spring to bring flowers and colorful birds instead of snow to cover the ground:)
The Indigo Buntings are pretty and they bring a lot of color with them. Our feeder is outside of our window which works good for my 200 mm lens. He was in the process of eating orange jelly when I shot this image.
