This wonderful image of a delicate butterfly resting on a flower has secured the Lowestoft Journal’s Picture of the Week.

The picture was captured when several painted lady butterflies suddenly appeared in his garden. This particular butterfly was feeding on the nectar of a flowering shrub and basking in the sunshine.

"Presumably they had just arrived from their trip from Africa. I have always like butterflies since a child," Mr Thompson said.

The species travels 12,000km and crosses the Sahara Desert twice. As our winner, Mr Thompson 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.
