What Makes This a Photo of the Day? This photograph conjures up the feeling of a lazy afternoon in the sun, a true dog day afternoon. I like how the sparseness of the scene reinforces the sense that all of the two-legged creatures are home having their siestas as well. —Alexa Keefe, Photo of the Day editor
