Congratulations to Hennie Louw from Bosveld Fotografie Klub!
He is our November winner with the image “Fish Eagle 4”
During mid-September, I was fortunate enough to join a group of photographers on a trip on the Okavango river in Northern Botswana.
The Barblerun was on at that stage and Herons and Fish Eagles were in abundance and all over the river.
A Fish Eagle in flight was high on my wishlist as I’ve been trying for many years.
A small unstable boat and no support with heavy gear called for some special effort and concentration.
The first few days I ended up with a lot of “cut-off” pics!
However, practice makes perfect and on the third day, I managed to get a series of pics of a beautiful specimen with its catch in the middle of the frame.

For the Junior Club Competition Winner of the Month, a club representative (ideally the Chairperson) submits the club winner via Photovault at www.photovaultonline.com.
