On a visit to Kruger National Park's Satara camp in 2016 (October) we were fortunate to experience this sighting. The previous evening we came across 18 Hyenas who had a den in a storm water channel. There were a number off young in the Hyena clan. Early the next morning (06:55) as we approached the group we saw this mother with an impala hind leg in her mouth carrying food to the den.
Our 1st runner-up is Cheryl Knight from Southern Suburbs Camera Club with her image "The Storyteller"
Our 2nd runner-up is Sussa Pelser from Hoëveld Fotografieklub with her image "Jumpers Silhouette"

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.

At the end of the PSSA calendar year (30 June of each year) the Junior Club Competition Winning Image of the Year is selected.
