The internet reacts to a weasel riding a woodpecker

Today the internet lost its mind over a picture of a baby weasel riding a green woodpecker taken by photographer Martin Le-May, at Hornchurch Country Park, east London.

Despite the fact the weasel was trying to kill and eat the woodpecker by tearing its throat out, the internet cooed, burbled, awwww-ed and fired up photoshop.
