IT WAS all about motion this week and our winning picture captures that perfectly.

Ian Jones took a series of images of a squirrel sprinting across a path (including one that looked like it was levitating) but our favourite was of the creature with paws on the ground ready to push forward.

We love the fact the animal is caught right in the middle of springing off again and that as the image is taken from near the ground the squirrel is looking directly at the camera.

When he shared the striking snap on the Oxford Mail Camera Club Facebook page earlier this week Ian White said he 'loved' the shot, while Glen Harfield complemented the squirrel on a ' nice handstand'.

Next week's theme is blue.

Happy snapping!
