Weasel Attack!

This has got to be the photo of the week, let alone of the day. Amateur photographer Martin Le-May was walking with his wife in Hornchurch Country Park, Havering, yesterday afternoon when this Weasel attacked a Green Woodpecker (Picus viridis) possibly a female. The woodpecker took flight with the weasel on its back. Weasels are ferocious little predators. The woodpecker escaped (CLICK).

This Matt cartoon (for March 4th) raises a laugh from the same subject.
