This wonderful close-up shot of a dragonfly during a rare moment of rest has been crowned The Journal’s Picture of the Week.
The picture was taken by 62-year-old Rosemarie Barnard from Oulton Broad using her Canon 100D camera at North Cove wildlife reserve.
She said: “We were looking for birds but there were loads of dragonflies around.
“I decided to focus on them a bit more and hey presto I came across that one which I had never seen before.
“It landed right in front of me and as they are bottom of the food chain they don’t rest for long.”
Ms Barnard added: “I really like the colouring and the unusual angle.”
As our winner, Ms Barnard receives a 10in x 8in framed version of his photo from Picture Studios, of London Road North, in Lowestoft town centre. Entries can be of any subject but they must be digital images.
