Early Summer Backyard Wildlife in New Jersey.

While working on my previous post “Wild Raspberry Cluster” I found this Dog/Wood Tick crawling up my pants leg. I was only outside 10-15 minutes getting the images for the Raspberry Composite.  The only thing more persistent than the ticks this year are the SEO scripters sending me spam comments, especially to my 13-June-2011 post. I do allow and like comments for my postings (especially constructive criticism) as long as they are relevant to the post.
