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).

I watch, and am as a sparrow alone upon the house top.
Psalms 102: 7
A White- throated Sparrow
On its trips to and fro...
Must always stay strong....
Whence they come and go..
"Oh Sweet Canada" is their song....
Before he hit the road...
This one decided it was wise..
To rest and eat at our abode...
Known also as a PeaÂ´bod`y
The poor cold birdie
Was puffed out twice his size.
Poetry by me AJP
The white- throated sparrows, who are migratory birds stopped here a few days ago
when it was very cold and I doubt he stayed very long ...they usually stick around for a week
or so before continuing on their journey..
Here is some additional information from a Reader's Digest North American Wildlife Book:
The White-throat is often nicknamed the Canada Bird or the Peabody Bird in imitation of
a typical song, written as "Oh Sweet Canada, Canada, Canada"....or "Poor Sam Peabody ,
Peabody, Peabody." But there are regional dialects among White-throated Sparrows, as well as marked individual variations. And because the White-throat is abundant and
whistles its sweet song loudly and not too fast, these variations are especially noticeable.
