A HATFIELD photographer has had her work recognised after capturing a stunning shot of young bear cubs.

June Sparham, of Bull Stag Green, has had three photos accepted for the 2013 East Anglian Federation of Photo Clubs exhibition. Her shots capture the animals playing together in Canada.

The 66-year-old said: “I spent a week in a small boat offshore watching the bear family group.

“The bears came out of the forest each morning to feed. And the cubs would play together in the afternoon.”

The photos, taken at Glendale Cove British Columbia, were entered for the exhibition through WGC Photo Club, where June is a member. All three of her entries were selected and one of them was highly commended.

She was one of 10 club members to have work exhibited.
