An image of a seal glistening in the morning sun has scooped first prize in the RSPCA's young photography competition.
16-year old Owen Hearn from Leighton Buzzard was named the overall winner of the RSPCA Young Photographers Awards 2014.
The picture was taken on the Norfolk coastline. Owen also won the 12 to 15-year old category for the same photograph.
Wildlife expert Chris Packham led the judging panel.
"It really stood out to the whole panel as soon as we saw it. Through this image he has really shown his talent and as fellow photographers we were jealous we hadn't taken the shot ourselves."
