Congratulations to Gonnie Myburgh from National Photographic Club!
She is our April winner with her image “Catch me if you can”
I took this photo during November 2017 in the Kgalagadi near Rooiputs. The previous morning there were three cubs playing. We were told that people witnessed that the Black-backed jackal caught two of the cubs. The next morning the mother took over the role of playmate and entertained us.
As these Cape foxes are nocturnal and active until just after sunrise, one has to deal with low light and very fast moving subjects. This photo was taken at 05:59.
I used a Canon 1DX MKII with a 500mm F4L lens plus a 1.4x convertor. Aperture f7.1; shutter speed 1/1600; exposure -0.67, and ISO 3200
Our 1st runner-up is Dries Fourie from Vereeniging Photographic Society with “Hold on Cowboy”
Our 2nd runner-up is Charmaine Venter from Tafelberg Fotografieklub with “Practising wing movement”
Thank you to the judges. They were:
Martin Kellerman – George Camera Club
Jenny Stilwell – Sandton Camera Club
Aubrey Siebert – Southern Suburbs Camera Club
