Junior Club Competition Winners Sep 2020

Vereeniging Photographic Society Linza van Aswegen Ikanyeni Cub

Congratulations to Linza van Aswegen from Vereeniging Photographic Society

Linza is our September winner with the image “Ikanyeni Cub”

Linza says:

All leopard cubs are vulnerable and rely on the protection of the female leopard. Due to this, leopard cubs are not named before they have turned 1 year old.

This is the beautiful Ikanyeni female cub which refers to her mother’s name. This female leopard as well as her cub are in Sabi Sand Game Reserve, bordering the Kruger National Park. I came across the Ikanyeni cub during the morning drive in the golden hour after spending time with her the previous afternoon as well. It really seemed as if she just loved the photographic attention!

I am truly blessed to be able to follow and watch these adorable and exquisitely gracious predators from time to time. Many hours of sitting very patiently, waiting at day or at night at a water hole or even below a tree in expectation of a leopard being on it’s way. Normally being warned by whooping hyena or even tell-tale and loud protesting Vervet monkeys!

Special memorable moments indeed.


Our 1st runner-up is Charles Pentz from Bethal Fotografieklub with “Take off”
