This quirky photo of four ducks sitting on the bank has taken the prize as our Picture of the Week.

Sixty-six-year-old Ricky Cone, of Oulton Broad, captured it on his Canon 7D camera on a glorious afternoon at Strumpshaw Fen.

Mr Cone said: 'I spotted the ducks as I was taking photos of a swan, they were just sitting on the bank and looked so in sync I thought what a lovely picture to share.

'It's wonderful to win another Picture of the Week. I love taking wildlife photos and winning your competition makes it all the more worthwhile.'

As our winner, Mr Cone 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.
