Woman Gets Attacked by Pigeon in Venice. Photo by NoSNoM (Via Imgur. Click image to see full size.)

The photo, which was taken with a Nokia Lumia 920, was snapped at the perfect moment. The bird couldn’t be in a better position, the Piazza set perfectly in the background, the colors stark, old-timey—a nice blend of history and killer bird—very Hitchcockesque!
