Our March winner is Leon Venter from Bethal Fotografieklub who wins with "Blackwinged Stilt"
I took the picture at a visit to the Zimanga Game Reserve in KwaZulu Natal in October 2016.
Late afternoon at the very well designed lagoon hide I was fortunate to see the Black Winged Stilt at close distance while wading along along the shoreline. Very limited cropping was done to the picture.

MARCH 2017 FINALISTS
HOW DOES THIS COMPETITION WORK?
This is a PSSA monthly competition where clubs enter their monthly winners (Junior and Senior) onto Photovault. Appointed judges select the winning Junior and Senior image. These monthly winners get displayed on the home page of our Website for the duration of the month.
For the Club Winning Picture of the Month a club representative (ideally the Chairperson) submits the club winners for Junior and Senior sections via Photovault at www.photovaultonline.com.
Instructions on how to upload your entry onto Photovault, can be dowloaded here
At the end of the PSSA calendar year (30 June of each year) the Junior Club Competition Winning Image of the Year is selected.
