American Goldfinch and Rolled Glass
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).

And the twelve gates were twelve pearls: every several gate was of one pearl: and the street of the city was pure gold, as it were transparent glass. Revelation 21:21
An American goldfinch
Found it a cinch
To try something new..
A feeder all to himself
Came out of the blue..
With a food pantry shelf!
An old rolled window,
In back of the house...
Is free from squirrels...
Not e'en a stray mouse,
From out of the meadow
Has seen its black pearls...
Poetry by me, AJP
We had to set up another feeder for the birds who can't always get on the bigger feeder because the squirrels have claimed it...The birds who have discovered this one such as the Chickadee and Goldfinch are satisfied, except for the bigger birds like the Rose-breasted Grosbeaks who have a hard time balancing. We have an old rolled glass window in back of the kitchen sink which we set the feeder with its suction cup on ...It gives some images a grainy muted look, especially distant pictures because of the quality of the glass, so I have to manually focus carefully to prevent distortions. It presents a bit of a challenge but sometimes I am pleased with the results and it is interesting to work through these problems that could defeat the purpose..
