Amazing Photo Shows Bird Flying With a Weasel Hanging On

This week, London photographer Martin Le-May captured one of nature’s magical moments on film — a weasel riding piggy-back on a green woodpecker in flight.

You might think the photo shows 2 species becoming close friends and enjoying each other’s company, but it was actually quite the opposite.

The weasel was trying to turn the bird into his next meal.

All ended well, however, when the bird landed and his unwelcome passenger scurried off into the horizon.

Today called the photo “fantastical,” and I agree. It has been retweeted more than 11,000 times, with one person commenting, “This is the best thing I have ever seen! The look on the pecker’s face!” Another person added that the weasel was “riding that bird like a flying dragon!”
