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).

Fear not little flock; for it is your Father's good pleasure to give you the kingdom...St. Luke 12: 32
The Pine Siskins
And goldfinch species
Act almost like kins
Tho' not of same feather,
They still are good friends.
In winter they flock together
To endure the cold weather.
Poetry by me, AJP
A few years ago I bought a Kaufman Field Guide of North America book where I learned that the Pine Siskin and the American goldfinch flock together in the winter and they have similar traits. It was also interesting to read about the Siskins various calls including a harsh rising "zzshrreees" Another sound they make is a clear "tweee," and a dry "cutcutcut." It made it more fascinating for me when I saw this Pine Siskin come to our window feeder a few days ago and also today to read about their habits.
