This delightful image of a swallowtail butterfly resting on a flower has won the Journal’s Picture of the Week.
As the warm weather approaches bees, bugs and butterflies dance in the gentle sunlight to welcome the fresh flowers.
This image was captured by Oulton Broad photographer Rosemarie Barnard, 62, at Strumpshaw Fen on her Canon 100d.

"I wouldn't want to say how big it was - but they are quite big. That one in particular is one of the largest species."
