Every day on Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter, we share a photo of the day — a superb image from the more than 20,000 pictures in our Reader Galleries. Our selections from the first two weeks of August 2021 included an amazing photo of American Goldfinches, a sighting of a juvenile Little Blue Heron, a fantastic photo of a pair of Trumpeter Swans, and more!

Trumpeter Swans, the largest North American waterfowl, came close to extinction in the 1930s. Conservation work beginning in 1935 preserved habitat, and numbers started to rise. Edwin Bowe spotted these two at Grand Teton National Park, Wyoming.
