This striking image of a great crested grebe with giant crayfish claw in its mouth has won Picture of the Week.
Captured by Kevin Coote of Oulton Broad, who is a keen amateur wildlife photographer, the photo was taken at the Lackford Lakes Suffolk Wildlife Trust site, near Bury St Edmunds.
The 55-year-old, who is a volunteer warden at the Suffolk Wildlife Trust site Carlton Marshes, said he visited with a friend and spent over 12 hours at the site photographing lots of different wildlife.
He said: 'I am over the moon that this picture has won as it is so different and I was amazed to see how large the crayfish claw was.'
As our winner, Mr Coote 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.
