Every day on Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter, we share a photo of the day — a superb image from more than 20,000 pictures in our Reader Galleries. The shots we selected in the first half of December 2020 included a group of Wood Storks, a stunning portrait of a Painted Bunting, an Osprey after catching a fish, and more!
