Incredible photo shows a weasel 'riding' a woodpecker :oneeye:

weaselridingawoodpecker_zpsavrumlj1.jpeg

 

 

On Monday, birder Jason Ward tweeted out this crazy photo by east London hobby photographer Martin Le-May of a weasel 'hitching a ride' on what appears to be a European green woodpecker and the bird doesn't look too happy about it.

If you've heard of the term fight or flight, this is a rare case of fight and flight.

The weasel wasn't really riding the bird, but trying to eat it.

 It gives a whole new meaning to the phrase "airline food".  By the way, what would be the best wine to serve with Woodpecker en vol?


To err is Human. To blame it on someone else is even more Human.

A nice Australian Merlot maybe.

A red wine with poultry?
Perhaps a Sauvignon blanc, which Austraila boasts several world class varieties.

Geographical error there, Bezukhov - New Zealand boasts several world class varieties.

Interesting what you find cute..... Just sayin
