Kaitlyn said: "I was completely overwhelmed to find out I had won. I love wildlife and I enjoy going out with my parents on wildlife trips! My motto is 'Enjoy the experience first and photographs second.'

"I was really happy to get the squirrel picture, they are so cute! I named it Peek-a-boo because the cheeky squirrel was actually playing peek-a-boo with me in the branches."

Judge Niall Irvine said: “Kaitlyn's picture is well composed with the tree branches framing the Red Squirrel. There's a nice side light to the image and a feeling of spontaneity and movement.”
