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 half of July 2021 included an amazing photo of a Red-shouldered Hawk, a rare sighting of Piping Plovers, a fantastic portrait of an Allen’s Hummingbird, and more!

This Red-shouldered Hawk found the perfect lookout post on a cypress knee to survey the area for a possible meal. Linn Smith submitted the photo to our U.S. & Canada Gallery.
