Did This Photograph Catch Two Unlikely Friends? Or A Life And Death Struggle

Martin Le-May from Essex London took an amazing photo of a baby weasel on the back of a green woodpecker.

When you first look at the image you may be lead to believe they were friends, but were actually in a life and death struggle. The baby weasel was trying to eat the woodpecker.

He and his wife were in their backyard when they heard a squawking and notices a flash of green. Upon closer inspection they noticed a weasel on the back of the woodpecker.

When the photographer approached the two animals it was enough to scare the weasel away and save the woodpeckers life.
