Is That A Weasel Riding a Woodpecker?

Have you seen this picture?  I came across it on the Houston SPCA blog…and I thought it was too awesome not to share.

First of all – that’s a woodpecker…a GREEN woodpecker (pretty cool, huh?)  And that is a baby weasel riding it.  Now, unfortunately, this picture was captured out in real-life nature (and not a Disney film) – so the weasel is trying to kill the woodpecker…but what an amazing shot!

Fortunately, the woodpecker did escape the encounter unharmed.  

The picture was taken by an amateur photographer named Martin Le-May who happened to witness this amazing site while out for a stroll in London.  Read what he has to say about the whole ordeal here.
