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).

The Lord is my light and my salvation: whom shall I fear?
The Lord is the strength of my life; of whom shall I be afraid? Psalm 27:1
The Milbert's tortoiseshell,
Is a swift butterfly;
In team work they excel.
Today they labored faster
Competing with bees
To save the asters,
Ere' they die
From winter freeze..
Bees and butterflies
All give salvation
Sharing life's length
Of the sweet flowers
To gain strength
For their own powers...
Poetry by me AJP
I spent a part of this afternoon after shooting these two butterflies, researching the identity of them. I previously wrongly believed they were of the Frittilary family. I looked through hundreds of butterflies today before I found the correct name~ "Milbert'sTortoiseshell." I felt like I had struck gold.
I did no photo shopping with enhancing this picture...It is exactly how it came from the camera. I was lucky to get a clear focus on both of the butterflies since
they were moving all over the place and it was windy besides. It really helped
to use my tripod to steady the camera.
