Weasel On Woodpecker: ‘How I Snapped The Photo’ BBC News

 

 

 

From BBC News

” The amateur photographer who took a picture of a weasel on the back of a woodpecker mid-flight says it is “almost a dream”.

  Martin Le-May took it while walking with his wife in Hornchurch Country Park in east London. He said “It’s almost a dream that you take a photograph that lots and lots of people not only look at but like”. “

    Watching the video and hearing Mr Le-May explain the circumstances of the tiny weasel attempting to take down prey nearly twice it’s size immediately brought to mind this old Merry Melodies cartoon :

      Like the weasel , this tiny chickenhawk had the “cojones” to tackle prey many times his size , namely Foghorn Leghorn … LOL

    While this video is obviously faked , it is very well done and truly hysterical . There can be no doubt that while this incident did not really happen there are many idiot crooks out there that could make it a reality . Have a laugh and thank the creative genius who crafted the video for a humorous start to the workday .

   The incident above took place in South Korea and the forty year-old in the video actually plummeted about twenty feet to his death . While we take no joy in the death of a fellow human being , we cannot help but wonder how a person can survive to the age of 40 without knowing that elevator doors remain shut for a reason ?
