Gray Catbird on an Olive tree branch
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.

Fear not little flock; for it is your Father's good pleasure to give you the kingdom...St. Luke 12: 32
The gray catbird was waiting here for a gray squirrel to finish eating on the feeder and it was sitting on an Olive tree branch with the flowering crab apple tree behind..
As pesky as squirrels are with hogging the feeder, they offer me good opportunities to capture birds pictures as they wait so patiently in the trees for their turn.
Waiting with head turned
On the olive tree branch
A catbird soon learned
Luck is not only by chance...
Squirrels at the table
Arrive there one by one...
As quickly as they are able
But take longer to get done.
The diner without lock
Waits for the stray flock,.
For the late to come...
And feast at the kingdom.
Poetry by me, AJP
