There is quite a bit of interest in Australian ticks at the moment, as we are beginning to understand how a tick bite can be more than just an annoyance. I’ve been involved in a publication about keeping tick safe while working in the bush available free here.
Some of my tick images are available for license. Please Email me if you are interested. Live ticks are challenging to photograph. Particularly the nymphs and larvae – if you lose sight of them they can be hard to find again!
