Reader Photos: Best of Southern California Moments for May

A luchadora taking a swig of tequila, birds sunbathing on a beach, a father taking a catnap after a long day of touristing. Our best of Southern California Moments for May were difficult to choose, when you consider that the month included such images as a Silver Lake chicken checking itself out in the mirror and a historic headline sitting on the doorstep. If you haven’t seen the full project galleries yet, take a look, and keep your submissions coming for June.

Every day of 2011, we’re featuring reader-submitted photos of Southern California Moments. Follow us on Twitter and visit the Southern California Moments homepage for more on this series. Contribute images here or through the L.A. Times Community Pool on Flickr.
