Every day on Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter, we share a photo of the day — a superb image from the more than 22,000 pictures in our Reader Galleries. Our selections from the second half of April 2022 include a portrait of a Cedar Waxwing, an adult King Penguin feeding its young, an extraordinary image of Calliope Hummingbirds, and a late-April encounter with Rough-legged Hawks in northern Minnesota. Enjoy!
Laure Wilson Neish photographed these two Calliope Hummingbirds touching bills in 2014. She spotted them near a feeder in Kaleden, British Columbia.
