Ring Around the Rosie

It seems like woodpeckers like to play this game when you are trying to get their picture.  If you are on one side of their tree, they will hitch around to the other.  If you move, they move. So I get plenty of pictures like this:

If I keep at it, I can get a picture like this:

And if the woodpecker tires of the game before I do I might finally get a decent shot.  This male Ladder-backed Woodpecker eventually came out in the open for me.
