Martin Le-May‘s incredible photo of a weasel getting a lift from a local woodpecker has got to be the most amazing thing you’ll see all day..

Some say it’s yet another sign of the end of days while others say it’s the animal world’s version of Uber.. But no matter how you slice it, it’s flippin’ amazing!


Weasel Riding A Woodpecker 2

The woodpecker landed in front of us and I feared the worst. I guess though our presence, maybe 25 metres away, momentarily distracted the weasel. The woodpecker seized the opportunity and flew up and away into some bushes away to our left. Quickly the bird gathered its self respect and flew up into the trees and away from our sight.

The woodpecker left with its life, the weasel disappeared into the long grass, hungry. Martin Le-May
