Photo of the Day

a robin in snow in Halland, Sweden

Winter Flight

A little snowfall didn’t deter this robin from taking to the sky, nor did it stop Your Shot member Tommy Eliasson from stepping into his garden in Halland, Sweden, to capture this image. Eliasson was able to set his camera up and snap a series of photos before the bird flew on. This photo was submitted to Your Shot, our storytelling community where members can take part in photo assignments, get expert feedback, be published, and more. Join now >>
