Here is a pic of a "Tick." We think this is a wood (dog) tick*; this isn't a deer tick. The body length is about 5 mm. This pic was shot in Minnesota on 100515.  Stay away from any ticks, especially deer ticks. Ticks are blood sucking parasites. Ticks are vectors for many diseases, for example, Lyme disease.
