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.

Blessed is he that waiteth....Daniel 12:12
I shot this image of a male Blue Jay through the window, two days ago patiently waiting for a gray squirrel on the feeder to get done eating ...It was snowing and wildlife eat more food to keep from freezing in cold weather...The blue jay was looking sad, but resigned sitting on the branch of a flowering crab apple tree while the squirrel kept eating like there was no tomorrow.
It must be a secret code among most birds to let the squirrels eat first...However, I have seen the Black Capped Chickadees eat with the squirrels on the feeder and they get along amicably.
I am adding this image to the growing up theme because I always remember
being taught as a child to be polite and wait my turn ...This bird so eloquently expresses in nature having to wait in snow and poor conditions for good things to happen...He is blessed for his strong will power and courage.
