The picture was captured when several painted lady butterflies suddenly appeared in his garden. This particular butterfly was feeding on the nectar of a flowering shrub and basking in the sunshine.
"Presumably they had just arrived from their trip from Africa. I have always like butterflies since a child," Mr Thompson said.
The species travels 12,000km and crosses the Sahara Desert twice. As our winner, Mr Thompson 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.
