When Martin Le May took this incredible photo of a weasel apparently riding a woodpecker, the internet took it as a challenge.
ABSOLUTLEY INCREDIBLE photo by Martin Le-May. Green Woodpecker and Weasel. Apparently the Woodpecker escaped. pic.twitter.com/PUt1b2Mbhs— Jason Ward (@Jayward7) March 2, 2015
Was there any way to create a more incredible picture?
Across the world photoshoppers and giffers went to work, here are five of the crazy results.

No animals were harmed in the making of these images as Le May reported that the Woodpecker, photographed in Hornchurch Country Park in Essex, managed to land and shake of the predator on its back before both creatures made their escapes.
