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.

Camponotus compressus, the common black ant is one of the most abundant and best known species of ants in India. The worker is a large jet-black ant ranging in length from 6 to 16 mm. with moderately large eyes, brownish legs and antennae and a prominent shining abdomen. These ants live in enormous communities, traveling long distances from their nests, and are active at all times of day and night. Though ordinarily of a peaceful disposition, when alarmed or disturbed they may display a tendency to be quarrelsome.Ants attack and defend themselves by biting and in many species, by stinging, often injecting or spraying chemicals like formic acid for which we feel pain but not fatal.
