11 Of The Worst Things You Can Say To Someone Struggling With Infertility

“Are you sure you’re doing right?” — Your mom

“Are you pregnant yet?”

No, are you tactful yet?

“Maybe having children is not in God’s plan for you.”

“Maybe having children is not in God’s plan for you.”

What may be comforting to some is deeply insulting to others. Infertility can feel like a personal failing and by putting it down to simply not being in God’s plan, you are throwing our suffering in our face.

“Just be patient.”

This Incredible Photo Of A Baby Weasel Riding A Woodpecker Is Straight Out Of A Children's Fantasy Book

Unfortunately, the weasel was attacking the bird. Fortunately, the bird escaped.

East London resident Martin Le-May captured this incredible photo of a baby weasel on the back of a green woodpecker in Esssex, England, on Monday.

East London resident Martin Le-May captured this incredible photo of a baby weasel on the back of a green woodpecker in Esssex, England, on Monday.

Martin Le-May

It's a photo of a weasel trying to kill a woodpecker.

Le-May, a hobby photographer, was taking a walk with his wife through the Hornchurch Country Park in east London in the hopes of her seeing a green woodpecker for the first time.

In an email to BuzzFeed News he described what we're calling "The Thrilling Tale of The Woodpecker and The Weasel":

"As we walked we heard a distressed squawking and I saw that flash of green. So hurriedly I pointed out to Ann the bird and it settled into the grass behind a couple of small silver birch trees. Both of us trained our binoculars and it occurred that the woodpecker was unnaturally hopping about like it was treading on a hot surface.

Lots of wing flapping showing that gloriously yellow/white colour interspersed with the flash of red head feathers. Just after I switched from my binoculars to my camera the bird flew across us and slightly in our direction; suddenly it was obvious it had a small mammal on its back and this was a struggle for life.

The woodpecker landed in front of us and I feared the worst. I guess though our presence, maybe 25 meters away, momentarily distracted the weasel. The woodpecker seized the opportunity and flew up and away into some bushes away to our left. Quickly the bird gathered its self respect and flew up into the trees and away from our sight.

The woodpecker left with its life. The weasel just disappeared into the long grass, hungry."
