An astounding photograph has caught a weasel on a woodpecker’s back as the flying creature flies in the air. The wildlife photographer, Martin Le-May from Essex, said he ‘dreaded the most exceedingly terrible’ for the green feathered creature in the wake of hearing ‘upset cackling’ amid its battle with the warm blooded animal at Hornchurch Country Park. After Le-May find out how to capture the fantastic picture – which has turned into a hit on Twitter since it was taken – the animal figured out how to escape with its life.
