"It was really quite warm and there was moths and a bee on a thistle. It was like a honey hotel, or a pollen party," she said.

Her husband purchased the camera for her six years ago following hard ships within the family, since then it hasn't left her side.

"He knows if I don't go out for a few days with my camera I will get grumpy," she said.

As our winner, Mrs Brown 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. To enter our competition, email your pictures to lowestoft.journal@archant.co.uk
