Surely mankind wasn't the one fascinated by the concept of flying as both humans and animals envy the flying and gliding animals of the wildlife.Just as predicted in the wildlife encounter of a cowboy frog riding a beetle that soon animal kingdom will catch up on thee trend of riding flying animals just like humans who fascinate their desire to ride the flying creatures in movies like how to train your dragon. Looks like this time around we have encountered a baby taking on the challenge of riding a flying animal. In an incredible wildlife encounter a baby weasel was seen riding on the back of a flying woodpecker at the Hornchurch Country Park in east London as the stunning moment was captured by the photographer Martin Le-May.
The incredible capture of baby weasel riding a flying woodpecker was very similar to one of those numerous scenes from bird based animation movies like Epic, Rio, Legend of the Guardians: The Owls of Ga'Hoole, free birds, etc.

However the mid air struggle between baby weasel and woodpecker ended shortly after the woodpecker shook off the hungry baby weasel using Martin's camera as distraction for the weasel as it flew towards them and used the moment when baby weasel was distracted to plan its escape route. Having been defeated the baby weasel went back to the trees empty handed while the woodpecker had shy of relief and flew high into the sky as it survived a potential danger to its life.
Baby Weasel rides a Woodpecker
Meanwhile the wildlife experts were astonished at the rare wildlife sighting of a weasel trying to prey on a woodpecker as they described the baby weasel as the ferocious lion with body as light as a snickers bar. Usually weasels are fearless and have very light body and are shown to take down animals bigger then themselves but it's rare for them to take down woodpeckers or maybe it was just the cowboy frog riding the beetle which inspired this extraordinary phenomenon.
