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 second half of July 2021 included an amazing photo of a Crested Caracara, a rare sighting of an Elegant Tern, a fantastic photo of a Ruby-throated Hummingbird, and more!
