Sitting on the tip of a diseased bay laurel leaf, about 1 foot off the ground.
31 May 2014.
Nottingham Park, Chester Co, PA.
"Collected" in serpentine barrens.
Found clinging tightly to my pants.
This tick became enamored of me and hitched a ride, but did not embed. The locus assigned is his point of origination, but the image was acquired when a suitable background appeared about one half km distant.
This tick took a liking to me, but was intercepted before he could start dining. I displayed him on a paper backing to get this shot, where he was totally vigorous and alive. Dermacentor andersoni ?
