You might think this cheeky squirrel would have to be nuts to try and break his way into a squirrel-proof bird feeder - but that's exactly what he did... and got STUCK.
The hungry creature had been trying to discover a way to break into the feeder for days without luck but kept on persisting in hope he would eventually crack the code.
And after cleverly crafting his way into the feeder and getting his fill of tasty treats, the squirrel quickly realised he was stuck and couldn't manoeuvre his way out.
The funny moment was captured in the back garden of keen photographer Lynne Pitts from New Hampshire, USA, who couldn't believe her eyes when she spotted the squirrel.
She said: 'We really enjoy feeding the birds here but the squirrels love the bird food too.
'We've tried all kinds of things to deter the crafty beasts - once we put grease on the feeder pole and the latest idea was this wonderful squirrel-proof feeder.
'When we bought it we were told it's really clever. They said the weight of the squirrel closes the feeding port and they are very effective.
'To fill the feeder the top flips open, but somehow this ever-ingenious squirrel managed to push the top up.
'In he dropped and in he stayed - clearly, he wasn't going to starve, at least not until the feeder was empty.
'Unfortunately for him it looked like he had eaten too much and got stuck, so I took his picture and then let him loose. It was really funny to see.'
