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).

Thou shalt know that thy tabernacle shall be in peace; and thou shalt visit thy
On March 17th, 2009, a Tufted Titmouse came to our feeder for the first time but if it has returned, we have not seen it...
I am glad that I shot more than one picture of it when it made its rare appearance and I decided to combine two pictures which I stitched together in a diptych.for this page.
A picture I posted in 2009 of the Titmouse and the story I wrote about it, is at the following link..
Here is a description of the Tufted Titmous found in my North American, Wildlife book from Reader's Digest:
Length 5 ½-6 inches
What to look for: gray with buffy flanks; gray crest (black in Texas). Habitat: deciduous forests, cypress swamps, pine woods, wooded bottom lands, orchards, suburbs.
Long regarded as a southern species, the Tufted Titmouse has been spreading northward in recent years. Now these tame, confiding birds are familiar visitors at feeders from Michigan to New England. Their ringing song varies; usually it is a rapid two note whistle--pe-ter, pe-ter. Titmice are relatives of the chickadees, and this species has a number of chicadeelike calls. In the West, the Plain Titmouse (Parus inornatus), which lacks the buffy flanks of the Tufted actually does call tsick-a-dee-dee.
