Weasel and Woodpecker Together

“They will neither harm nor destroy on all my holy mountain, for the earth will be filled with the knowledge of the LORD as the waters cover the sea.” ~ Isaiah 11:9

Peace on Earth? Not yet…

 The weasel was looking for lunch. This is less like our blessed hope, and more like a Ferguson carjacking incident.

I saw this pic a couple days ago, too, and initially thought it to be one of those “lion laying down with sheep” heart-warming pics.
Until I read the text explaining the pic. The woodpecker wasn’t giving the weasel a friendly ride. The weasel had pounced on the woodpecker TO EAT IT, but the woodpecker was able to take flight.
There is a happy end to the story: Weasel fell off woodpecker.
