Giant Swallowtail O'er Marigolds...For Richard Knight on his birthday
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).

The last shall be first and the first last for many be called, but few chosen....St Matthew 20: 16
A giant Swallowtail today
Picked a flower in decay
Knowing that one needed care
For it had seen a bit of wear....
Tho' it stood above the rest,
Of Marigolds who were stronger,
The chosen flower was blest
To live the good life longer..
Poetry by me, AJP
Happy birthday, Richard....We haven't seen an over abundance of butterflies this summer and was delighted to see a giant swallowtail appear this afternoon!
All I had on my camera at the time was an 18-105 mm lens, but it worked fine for this picture showing the "Torch Tithonia" flower in focus standing above the rest..
