Reader Photo: Feeding time at the Whittier Narrows Nature Center


Lou Orr photographed a black-chinned hummingbird feeding its chicks at the Whittier Narrows Nature Center in South El Monte.

Orr, a volunteer at the nature center, had been watching the nest for four weeks, checking in on the hummingbirds every few days.

Orr took this photo on June 29 with a Canon EOS-1D X.
