Male Indigo bunting
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.

...the robe all of blue...Exodus 28: 31
The Indigo bunting, a migratory bird who arrives usually in late spring or early summer did not make its appearance last year. .We don't see an abundance of them but hopefully at least the male and its mate will show up again this spring. The males are a very vibrant Indigo blue and the females are not as colorful with brown and white undertones. This little guy had just arrived that spring day in May of 2008 when I shot this picture and he was resting on the olive tree branch with a wistful look on its face...perhaps waiting for a squirrel to get off the feeder.
Thank you so much Heather (Jan Elle) for nominating this photo..Very much appreciated!
