Our photo of the day comes from Atascadero, California.
Photographers shooting in the wild are reliant on the whims of natural lighting, which can make or break a photo. In this shot of a western bluebird taken by Rick Derevan, it's safe to say that the light was cooperating. Rick writes: "This bluebird landed on a persimmon that fortunately for me was in front of a fork in the trunk of a large oak tree, giving this spotlight effect."
