Amateur photographer Martin Le-May, from Essex, has recorded the extraordinary image of a weasel riding on the back of a green woodpecker as it flies through the air.

The photograph was taken at Hornchurch Country Park in east London on Monday afternoon.
Speaking to BBC News, Mr Le-May said he had managed to capture the moment while he was out walking with his wife Ann.
He said: "I heard a distressed squawking noise and feared the worst.
"I soon realised it was a woodpecker with some kind of small mammal on its back.

Wildlife expert Lucy Cooke: 'Extraordinary thing to have captured'
"I think we may have distracted the weasel as when the woodpecker landed it managed to escape and the weasel ran into the grass."

Jack-in-the-box melody:

"Dreaming in a London wood,
Of soaring like the Eagle,
Leaped atop a peckerwood,
Up! Goes the weasel."
