Your ticks look so big compared to our deer ticks.
I would contribute more to this thread but I never have a camera with me. Spent the morning yesterday clearing another section of my property of jagger bushes and saplings. Working with my pole saw and loppers helped keep me warm.
No ticks for me yesterday.
When I moved from western PA to Oklahoma, people thought I was crazy for calling "thorn bushes" jagger bushes. This made me smile.
