It's starting to feel winter is behind us now, with the days getting longer and the flowers growing.

Our theme for March's camera club competition was "green" - and what better image to fit the bill than Janet Levett's photo of the daffodils on Goring Green.

It was a tough competition with dozens of entries from across Sussex, so crowning the winner proved a challenge.

Philip Carter zoomed right in this month, snapping a lone ladybird resting on a flower in Rudgwick.

The contrast between the green background and red wing is eye catching.

Rob Porter-Jones gave us more than we had asked for with his colourful shot of Leonardslee Gardens near Horsham.

From greens, to reds, to blues and everything in between, his picture really encapsulated the weather to come.

Sticking with the theme of flowers, Suzi Sullivan captured this parakeet snacking on a flower in Bushy Park, London.

The cheeky bird pulled a face for Suzi as she pointed her lens towards its branch.

The night did not stop camera club photographer Stuart Carden from taking his camera out for some snaps.

He captured a green carpet of plants in Pavilion Gardens in the dark, illuminated only by lamps on the pavement.
