Remarkable picture of Green Woodpecker

You may already have seen this, a picture of a Green Woodpecker flying with a Weasel on his back.

Hi Tord. I started a thread about it yesterday here, although the obscure title probably explains why you missed it.

It is certainly an amazing, unique photo.

Re: Remarkable picture of Green Woodpecker

I wouldn't have fancied the weasel's chances given the very sharp and strong beak on a green woodpecker! I bet that weasel will leave woodpeckers alone in future. It was a brilliant capture, though, byt that guy with a camera (smartphone?)!

In the video in the link above, he is shown using a Canon 70D with a biggish lens attached.

Yes, I spotted some shots of it in our morning paper. I've usually left the camera at home when anything like that happens!
