A good reminder not to go prancing around off-trail. Fairly large, as ticks go.
Happened to see him crawling on my cap brim, just in time for the safety talk for the volunteers!
This is called questing.
Looks to be a small tick. Has 3 legs on each side of its body for total of six legs. Has 2 antennae. It is flat and not engorged (full from blood). I am not 100% certain that the classification, provided above, is correct. It has a cream colored "n" shape on its back up near its head. When viewed under a 20x magnifying glass in appears to look like a flattened raisin.
After walking in the woods, I got one! (I hope I was not bitten!)
