This wonderful close-up shot capturing a vole as it chews the soft bark off a fallen twig was taken by 61-year-old Robert Quadling during a visit to Lackford Lakes, near Bury St Edmunds.

Mr Quadling, who lives in Lowestoft, used his Nikon D7100 with a 600mm lens to take the photograph.

He said: “As the weather was nice on Sunday I decided to have a trip to Lackford Lakes to see what wildlife I could photograph there.

“I was just finishing my walk when I came across this vole by the edge of the footpath.

“I did not have a lot of time to get my shot as these little animals do not tend to stay around for long before they disappear into the undergrowth.”

As our winner, Mr Quadling 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.
