This Month in Photo of the Day: Travel
A woman in Deshnoke, Rajasthan, watches as rats drink milk from a pan at the Karni Mata Temple, a monument to the rat goddess. More than 20,000 rats live in the temple, including a handful of white ones, which are thought to be direct descendents of Karni Mata and therefore considered especially sacred.
Photo Tip: In 90 percent of cases, using your camera's auto white balance, like autoexposure, produces great results.
