An amazing image of a weasel mounted on a flying woodpecker has been captured by a photographer in a London park

The remarkable shot was taken yesterday by Martin Le-May while he was walking with his wife through Hornchurch Country Park in Havering, London.

The pair heard “distressed squawking” before witnessing the woodpecker’s “struggle for life” as the weasel clung to its back.

I saw that this morning. Truly amazing!

I can see by your coat my friend you're from the other side. Just one thing I got to know. Who won?

I'm skeptical about this, why just one picture? If I something like that, I'd be clicking non-stop. Can anyone see any claws digging into the bird?

I saw all those pics and something is niggling at me. When I get home I'll give it a closeup look in Photoshop as I am curious as to where the weasel's claws are.

chuckle.gif Yes, this could be photoshop, and I'm too tired to look at it, however the bird has a look of sheer terror on it's face, I'll give it that.

Yes the terrorized look on the bird's face, and a little research on my part that, that weasel can be the size of a mouse...perhaps it's the real deal.
