See some of March's most popular photos

Every day, we feature an image chosen from thousands submitted to our photo community, Your Shot. Here are some of the month's highlights.

It's been about a year since I've taken over as a the producer for Photo of the Day, and the standout images from March underscore what I love so much about this series. Every day is a new peek at a different corner of the world. Every image has a new story to tell on our planet's wildlife, landscapes, communities, and cultures. And it's all seen through the lens of our talented and diverse photo community, Your Shot.

I'm always looking forward to where we'll go next, and the stories still to be told.
