This wonderful shot capturing a curious squirrel as it cautiously approaches the camera was taken by 24-year-old Emma Pitcher.

Ms Pitcher, of Oulton Broad, used her Nikon D7500 to take the picture at Sparrow's Nest and Gardens, in Lowestoft.

She used peanuts to perk the creature's interest and attract him to the camera for the photo.

Ms Pitcher said: 'It took ages to get this shot but it feels brilliant to win as I love to photograph animals and anything to do with nature.

'I love the image myself as it is so colourful and captures the season perfectly.'
