Downward Spiral 5146

This is a mosaic of eight shots taken over the course of about 30 seconds, while this Downey Woodpecker hopped down the tree to her reward of sunflower seeds at the feeder.  Woodpeckers tend to fly in and land high on a tree near the feeding site, then jerk their way down toward the ground in a pseudo-sinusoid fashion.  A quick flight from near ground level takes them to the food source.
