Arrival of the Male Rose-breasted Grosbeak
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.

But ask now the beasts and they shall teach thee; and the birds of the air, and they shall tell thee...Job 11: 07
After flying from Mexico
The rose-breasted grosbeak
Has surely been on the go...
More than we can speak!
The colorful migratory birds
are faithful to their words...
Cold weather drives them away
And they usually arrive in May....
Poetry by me, AJP
I was so happy to see this colorful male rose-breasted grosbeak make his arrival today... It flies south for the winter and north in the spring. We have been waiting for its appearance..He came a little earlier this morning and I was all set to take its picture before it rained, but a squirrel decided at that exact moment to chase it off the feeder...Thankfully it came back (without the interference of the squirrel) after it stopped raining and the lighting was even better.
Thank you so much Gloria (Je suis Moi) for the spotlight...and thank you also again for the nomination...
I decided to enter this in the triangle challenge...as this bird has a pronounced triangle shaped beak and a triangle pattern on its chest, plus triangle shaped wings. When you observe a bird you may see many triangular patterns on them to even the designs inside of their wings.
