This greedy pigeon bit off more than he could chew as he was caught with a mouth full of cherry.
Piotr Górny is a 26-year- old mathematician and urban wildlife photographer who captured the pigeon in his hometown Bydgoszcz in Poland.
He said, “I took these pictures from my hiding place.”
“I expected to take some interesting shots of wild species visiting my garden because of the delicious fruits on our cherry tree.
“There were many species – starlings, fieldfares, jackdaws, rooks, wild pigeons, great and blue tits, even sparrows, all of them interested in cherries.
“The series below shows the largest species of European pigeon– the wood pigeon.
“It was an impressive observation, but it is not unique to me as I’ve seen wild pigeons enjoy fruit many times.
“This was, however, my lucky day. The bird showed up right in front of my hiding spot and swallowed the cherries one by one,”
“After a short break and resting on a branch, the pigeon flew away.”
