Lovely shots, although I must admit that tick brings back some very bad memories of hiking in Paynes Prairie and coming home with quite a few hitchhikers in some pretty uncomfortable places.

Wow, that tick was eating well!

Reminds me of the farm days when you'd spend hours picking the deer ticks off of the dogs, you were almost always too late, and they'd be filled to the brim.

Of course, it was never fun finding them on the top of your head, either.

Yes indeed. I have dogs also, and ticks are no joke, as they pass any number of nasty (sometimes fatal) blood-borne protozoal diseases (babesia, ehrlichia, leishmanaiasis, etc.) However, they are also fascinating in their adaptability and morphology so I thought I would start a new project on doing macro shots of the ones I find either in the field, plucked off of one of my dogs (as this one was) or plucked off my own @$$ after a hike :lol:
