Senior Club Competition Winners February 2022

Hibiscus Coast Photographic Society Michelle Pearson Showing off my catch

Michelle Pearson from Hibiscus Coast Photographic Society is our February winner!

Michelle, congratulations on your winning image – Showing off my catch!

Michelle says:
The Kgalagadi Transfrontier Park is probably my favourite place to photograph birds of prey.

On a very disappointing photographic day, while heading back to camp late in the afternoon, I suddenly noticed a Black-shouldered Kite perching on a branch with it’s back towards me. I stopped and got my camera ready, hoping it would turn around at some point and give me a better pose.

Suddenly the bird decided to turn around and I noticed it had just caught a mouse! During the few seconds it turned around and flew off to a lower perch, I managed to capture this lovely image of the bird with a clear shot of the face of the mouse as well in the lovely afternoon light.


Our 1st runner-up is Nico Hattingh from Springs Photographic Club with “Purple Swamphen”
