This beautiful close-up wildlife shot of a hunting Kingfisher enjoying a spot of lunch has been crowned The Journal’s Picture of the Week.

The exquisite photograph was taken by 52-year-old Valerie Bond, from Carlton Colville, during a visit to Lackford Lakes Nature Reserve.

She used her Sony RX10 III and said: “The Kingfishers were showing well after a little bit of a wait and the female caught a fish and settled on a branch to eat it.

“I am very happy to win with this image and I like the way the Kingfisher and fish are eye to eye as if the fish is awaiting its fate with a look of ‘please don’t eat me’.”

As our winner, Ms Bond receives a 10in x 8in framed version of her photo from Picture Studios, of London Road North, in Lowestoft town centre. Entries can be of any subject but they must be digital images.
