Junior Club Competition Winners April 2019

Midlens Fotoklub Susan Otten Midmorning snack

Congratulations to Susan Otten from Midlens Fotoklub!

She is our April winner with the image “Midmorning snack”

“Almost every morning, after dropping the children at school, I weapon myself with my camera and do a walk in the garden. Since I started Macro Photography, I am always looking for insects where ever I go. I noticed a few woolly aphids, and searched again for something. I noticed there was a Robber fly hiding on a lily leave. I quickly kneeled and as I took the photo, I saw that it was munching on a Green Bottle fly. I only had time to take one photo before it flew away.

I used  a Canon 7D II with a Canon 100mm Macro lens. I used a flash with diffuser as well as an extension tube. My settings were 1/250 sec f11 ISO 125 focal length 100 mm.” 


Our 1st runner-up is Matthijs Ravensberg from Port Elizabeth Camera Club with “Barn owl”
