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 October 2020 included a fantastic portrait of a Sandhill Crane, a Black-crowned Night-Heron with a fish, a close-up of an Allen’s Hummingbird, and more!

Great Horned Owls' feathers insulate them against cold temperatures and help them fly quietly in pursuit of prey. Jeff Crawn photographed this one in a friend's yard.
