I’m on a road trip with John and Kendra Abbott. In addition to looking for odonates, they are also working on a new field guide to insects of North America. I took advantage of the light box photo set ups they are using to take illustrative images of various insects, spiders, etc., so I’ll post a few I took here. The tick in these images was one I sort of had a personal relationship with, as it was crawling on my sock. ID to genus here, I will add a species eventually. It was plucked off my sock, photographed, then retained as a specimen by John. Take that, tick!

Acari (or Acarina) are a taxon of arachnids that contains mites and ticks. The diversity of the Acari is extraordinary and its fossil history goes back to at least the early Devonian period. As a result, acarologists (the people who study mites and ticks) have proposed a complex set of taxonomic ranks to classify mites. In most modern treatments, the Acari is considered a subclass of Arachnida and is composed of two or three superorders or...
