It's Thursday night.Â Here's a tick:
Photo details: Canon MP-E 65mm 1-5x macro lens on a Canon EOS 50D
ISO 100, f/13, 1/250 sec, flash diffused through tracing paper
Great picture! So, um, pet or stowaway?
Thanks jason! Definitely a stowaway- my inner dialogue played between "Aahh! Get it off me!" and "Hey, I probably ought to have a photo of one of these things" for a few moments before the calmer photographer prevailed.
Incidentally, this tick never tried to bite.
Great image of a little high-wire walker.
