This vibrant and colourful close-up of insects suckling on a thistle has won the Lowestoft Journal's Picture of the Week.

Georgina Brown, 62, from Lowestoft captured this image on her Panasonic Lumix G8X while walking out with her husband at Lound Lake.

"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.
