    I found this tick under my dogs ear today. Gross bugger was in there good, I had to use scissors. Miraculously the head stayed intact, so I could snap a quick few shots before ending it. I don't have a true 1:1 macro lens, this is as far as I could get with cropping.

    I'm also aware of the smudge in #2 on left.

    Never seen a tick before. Looks like a little potato with feet.

    Actually this tick is just an engorged tick - he'd been attached and "eating" for awhile thats why he looks like a potato with feet [:lol:] as mooimeisie mentioned. :D I congratulate you ocular on having the creativity to even think about getting a photo of this thing. :thumbup:
