Photos of the day: May 16-31, 2021

Every day on FacebookInstagram, 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 May 2021 included an amazing photo of an Anna’s Hummingbird, an image of the most Instagrammable bird, a pair of American White Pelicans flying in unision, and more!

Gallery member Linn Smith shared this lovely image of a preening Limpkin in our U.S. and Canada Gallery. We love the bird's rich brown feathers accented with white flecks.
