The Ticks are Back! 

So while processing the Rabbit images, I feel something crawling on me. Yet another Tick. Will need to do some research to see if it is a Deer Tick, Dog Tick, or Wood Tick. Let me know if you recognize this critter. I have both a top and bottom view using macro lenses.

[21-June-2011: Rick Sidler sent me a link that clearly shows this to be Dog Tick (also known as a Wood Tick)]
