    ID appreciated

          Not my usual choice of Kit as I set for Landscape photography but found some other things to shoot. Taken with my E-M1 and 40-150 pro and MC-14.

          Taken handheld at the Dubwath silver meadows nature reserve on my way home

            Is a Tic an insect?
            Cathy's new pet - she picked it up in Scotland, and expertly removed without killing it!

              A Tic is a behavioural abnormality!

              A Tick is related to mites and spiders.

                So Cathy's new pet is responsible for her tic?


                Edit: I did take a picture of it in situ but thought better of posting it here!

                              I take them out with the tip of my sheath knife - like taking out the eye of a spud. I take plenty of meat with it, just to ensure I've got all of it!
