So, a photo of a weasel riding a woodpecker surfaced on the internet. The photo was taken in London by a photographer named Martin Le-May. While it might look like an adorable pairing, Le-May reckons the wily weasel had supper on its mind.
"As we walked, we heard a distressed squawking and I saw that flash of green," he told reports. "The woodpecker was unnaturally hopping about like it was treading on a hot surface. Just after I switched from my binoculars to my camera, the bird flew across us and slightly in our direction; suddenly, it was obvious it had a small mammal on its back and this was a struggle for life."
