Black Capped Chickadee through 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).

I come unto you in the spirit of meekness...I Corinthians 4: 21
This was shot at 5:30 PM tonight when it was getting dark and I used flash with night portrait in the scene mode. The old rolled glass doesn't do badly with flash but of course needed to be close to the window to prevent glare. There was some food residue on the glass from where the birds had been pecking on it which made it necessary to clone out the distracting spots in photo shop.
The Chickadees dearly love their window feeder which is in line with our kitchen sink. We've had a number of small birds come to eat there and they are happy they don't have to share with the squirrels who are content with their own feeder behind the south side of our house. It solves a lot of problems in the world of nature!!! It also makes the chore of washing dishes much more pleasant when I can watch the pretty birds through the window as they are enjoying their meal...Some of the bigger birds are too big for the window feeder unfortunately, and they take their chances with sharing with the squirrels on the other feeder.
Thank you JPG staff for spotlighting this picture...Since I shot this picture in 2012...All the
birds now share the bigger wooden feeder on the south side of the house. The little plastic feeder here we did have in back of the rolled glass window got eventually discovered by the red squirrels who broke it down. I appreciate the spotlight received 9/30/ 2016. Thank you.
