Bee and Delphinium (6 flower petals + 1 bee= 7)
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.

Two are better than one; because they have a good reward for their labor. Ecclesiastes 4:9
The bumble bee
Buzzes and hums
pollinating the delphiniums
Are now appearing
But are not interfering
with the bee of big size.
Poetry by me AJP
This big bumble bee has mostly been pollinating the delphiniums by itself outside of a few butterflies that are now showing up. They are later this year.
The bee is probably more aggressive because of the task at hand and several times flew
around my head in trying to steer me away but I finally got a shot of it in mid air. When it became feisty I just stood still and tried not to panic until it settled down:) The bee on the Marigold that I shot last year which I entered for the bee challenge was more gentle. This one is of a different species and it definitely was more challenging to capture..
I just realized there are 6 flower petals on the delphinium and with the bee makes 7 and will
enter this in the number 7 theme.
