A baby weasel was photographed riding a woodpecker in Essex, UK, and the internet lost its mind.
Amateur photographer Martin Le-May captured the incredible scene after hearing the bird in distress. Unfortunately, it turned out that the baby weasel was trying to kill the woodpecker and hadn’t graciously accepted a free ride.
Luckily the bird escaped unharmed, and the two internet heroes live to fight another day. Speaking to the Standard Le-Ray said: “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 just disappeared into the long grass, hungry.”
