Apparently this is real. I'm just going to keep basking in its glory until it's debunked tomorrow.

I stopped breathing when I looked at that. I forgot how to breathe.

it is cute, until you remember that weasels are ruthless killers that routinely take down animals larger than themselves and the woodpecker is panicking for its life.

It's not cute, it's amazing. It's incredible that the photographer got the shot! And that's kind of how nature is- red in tooth and claw. But if it makes you feel better, the woodpecker apparently got away in the end.

Knowing the woodpecker got away actually did make me feel better, but yeah, it's a pretty awesome shot of nature happening.

I feel like I need to understand the scale of this better! Is that a thimble-sized weasel or a giant bird?

It's definitely a real-sized Putin.

He's really small! Why does anyone even pay him any mind? Just flick him!

This almost made me choke on my cha siu bao.

I got curious and looked into the size issue. This looks like a European green woodpecker, which according to Wikipedia, "The European green woodpecker measures 210–216 mm". That's about 8.5 inches.

I thought Putin was Rob Halford for a minute, which would also have been awesome.

I read this whole thread thinking we were staring at a weasel on a hummingbird instead of a woodpecker.... must be bedtime.

HA- the latest meme I've seen has the weasel wearing The Dress (the Which Color Is This Dress dress). I'm so goddamn grateful I live in a day and age with Photoshop.

I read an article that said it's a BABY weasel, and that's why it looks so small up there. Apparently it's an early-maturing glory-seeking baby weasel. Who bit off more than he could chew! (sorry)

Also. Erika, you rock.
