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).

God hath not given us the spirit of fear; but of power, and of love...II Timothy 1: 7
I looked up information about these wildflowers in my North American
Wildlife book from Reader's Digestand here is what I found.
"Algonquian Indians called this member of the poppy family puccoon, as they did almost any plant that was a source of dye. They used its copious red latex to color clothing and baskets, and applied it to their bodies and faces as ceremonial paint. In the latter capacity, it also served as an insect repellent.. "
