This colourful photo of a butterfly resting on flowers at Strumpshaw was won our Picture of the Week.

Chris Smy, who is retired and lives in Pakefield, used his Canon camera to capture the shot on June 1.

He said: 'It was on a day out in Strumpshaw taking photos, I knew the swallow tail should be about but luck was on my side and after a long walk I found them.

'It's great to win and makes it all worthwhile.

'Who cannot like this beautiful butterfly.'
