Bold as brass, the cheeky titmouse swoops in and plucks the nut from the snowball with ease.

The images, which show the small songbird fronting up to the surprised rodent, were caught on camera by Vadim Trunov, from Voronezh, Russia.

The 33-year-old was in a forest in Rostov feeding the squirrels, when he decided to entertain them by hiding food in the snow.

He said: ‘I often go to the forest to feed squirrels but this time I also decided to play with the squirrels.

Vadim said he was shocked to see the fight ensue but guessed the little bird must have been hungry to take on a squirrel more than twice its size.

‘I put some nuts in a snowball and this squirrel came over and sensed it straight away.

‘The squirrel grabbed the snowball in its paws and began to take the nuts out of the snow.

‘Suddenly a bird flew up and sat on a snowball, which was held by a squirrel.

‘The bird pulled the nut out of the snowball and flew away.’
