A 15-year-old Suffolk boy has been named as a winner in a RSPCA competition for his “serene” photograph of a damselfly.
Kyle Moore, of Oakwood Road, Lowestoft, sent in his picture to the RSPCA Young Photographer Awards 2013.
Wildlife expert and RSPCA vice president Chris Packham led a judging panel of industry professionals and hosted the award ceremony at the Tower of London last week.
Kyle entered his photograph, entitled End of Another Day, of the damselfly in front of a setting sun, in the 12-15 Years category.
He said: “While walking back home one night after photographing the local owl I noticed a damselfly on a blade of grass with the setting sun as a background, I just had to get the macro lens out and take some photos.”
He was also commended in the awards for another photograph in the 12-15 Years section as well as in the portfolio class.
