Welcome to Photo of the Day. The POTD thread was started by iGary in May, 2006 and converted to a monthly thread in November 2007 by Arn. POTD is one of the most popular picture groups on MacRumors, often exceeding 500 posts and 20,000 views per month.

Photo of the Day is intended to be a showcase for your best pictures. There is no limit to your gear, just your imagination. P&S and film cameras are welcome along with DSLRs. There are no themes like the Weekly Contest, and no winners (or losers) either.

Hope it's okay to post this moving picture:

I put up the nest box and within a few days this wren was starting to haul little branches in there.
So I set up my tripod close by and remotely triggered the camera from inside the house.
Since I was taking a lot of pictures in sequence, I figured this is the best way to show the birds accomplishment.

The runaway flamingo. People don't realize how dangerous these are and a reason for the warning about open water use. Thankfully, no child was in this escapee. Saw them down the shore out neck deep and 10 minutes later see them swimming after it as the wind caught it. In theory, if a child was in it, I could have run down the shore for a better angle and swum out where would drift to me. Even better, while no lifeguards in the park, adjacent to the park, about 1/4 mile away, was a Coast Guard Auxiliary station - but with the flamingo empty, just let it drift out into the Gulf. Serves them right, and hopefully they learned as they only lost the flamingo.

Plus, this is Venice FL beach, know for shark teeth on shore, and several groups had their sifters searching for them. I found one with my bare hands. While I didn't see any shark activity, don't really relish an open water swim.
