001- Ticks by the seaside.

I was surprised to find twenty or so ticks on our dog while we were on holiday at the beach. Fortunately we got them off easily, I saved a couple which made great macro subjects.
I 'simulate' a tick jumping onto dog and then get some even closer shots of various tick body parts. A ticks mouth is absolutely amazing.
We checked ourselves as well, luckily they prefer dogs.
