This is the magical moment a baby weasel hitches a ride on the back of a woodpecker.
The photos were taken by Martin Le-May, a photographer from East London who said he was walking in the park when he noticed some commotion nearby.
A bird flew right past them with a small mammal on its back, that’s what prompted him to pull out his camera and take these photos.
What initially seemed like a magical moment, turned out just to be a fight for survival between a woodpecker and a weasel.
When the woodpecker landed, the pair battled it out a little before the bird flew away.
Weasels are known to rob bird nests and even attack birds, Le may wrote on a post: “The woodpecker left with its life. The weasel just disappeared into the long grass, hungry.“
