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.

I've been a birder since mid-2006. I always had an interest in birds and watched them in my yard or out my window, but something changed in 2006 and I started to go out and deliberately look for them.
It was amazing how easy it was to add "life birds" to my list. So many birds that were probably always there, that I just never took note of.
It took six years before I found a Hudsonian Godwit. Its a scarce bird and it breeds in Canada near the Hudson Bay and winters in South America. When it Migrates Northbound it comes in across the great plains. When it returns south in the fall it follows the Atlantic Flyway. So there is a small window to see these birds in my area, southern Maine.
This bird was in a large panne in Scarborough Marsh in Cumberland County Main in September of 2012.
