When you provide a callable for the default, the result of calling that function/method/object is used as the default value. It's up to you to provide a callable that returns a value of the right type. In this case, datetime.date.today would be an appropriate callable for a DateField. Using datetime.datetime.now returns a date and time, which isn't appropriate for that type of field.
