Female Orchard Oriole
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).

This female Orchard Oriole came a few days later than her mate on May 20, 2011 ... We had never seen this species of wild bird before last year or since..They were migratory birds just passing through and needless to say it was thrilling to see them...I posted a cropped version of this picture last year...This is the untouched original from my camera without cropping or photo shop editing..
She was standing on an Olive tree branch by our window when I shot this image. There was an atmospheric haze in the air, which produced a soft yellowish hue to the background that especially shows up the way it looked on this unedited photo.
Thank you very much for the Spotlight Page Looney...Very appreciated!
