Nice set. I hate ticks! I have a scar from one of those nasty creatures that burrowed into my leg at Ft. Hood. Careful out there, they carry Lyme disease.

Blah! on #1 and #2. Nice set, though. I'm always tromping through the tall stuff around here and have been really surprised that I haven't had those little vampires on me.

Good set D. Ticks really are the worst creatures on earth. Disgusting things. Great to photograph tho.

In the US ticks primarily feed on White-tailed deer. What is it they've adapted to in Great Britain?

Everything with blood really. Birds, rabbits, deer, humans, foxes, sheep, cattle, dogs, cats, etc etc.

Our deer ticks attack just about every mammal here, and carry lyme disease to boot. I'm very fortunate that I don't seem to pick them up given all the time I spend in the brush.
