Hundreds of clever children have used their knowledge in a Lowestoft park to net themselves a tasty treat - a free Easter egg.
Sparrows Nest Gardens was a hive of activity as 400 youngsters took part in an Easter egg hunt with a difference.
To win their free egg at the Lowestoft Lions-organised Easter Sunday hunt, children aged up to 10 had to complete a picture quiz trial around the park.
There were 40 questions dotted across the park, such as what is this animal?, who is the Disney character?, guess the computer game and what kind of car am I?
Watched on by a playful Easter Bunny, the small army of youngsters could be seen darting around the park to find the questions and then fill out an answer form under the supervision of their parents or carers.
As well as munching on their tasty prizes and totting up their answers, children could enjoy a bouncy castle and rodeo ride and take part in fun activities and dances in a K SYL R roadshow.
It was the ninth Lowestoft Lions Easter egg hunt and organisers say the event seems to get popular with every passing year.
Mark Lanham, event organiser, said: “We had 400 children up to the age of 10 pre-register for the hunt. When we first started out we only had 60 to 70 there to take part.
