macro photography: sheep tick
I have a project to get good shots on ixodes ricinus. I have just get started. This is one of my first photo of this small challenging object. Interesting.
So far it has been quite easy to find these small and harmfull ticks. Yesterday I had a white towel in the end of a hockey racket and was sweeping around with it in grass for 0,5 hour. Did find 4 male ticks and 2 female ticks. Our neighbour cats has ticks on them regurarly.
My gear to take this photos is Eos 5II, 65 mp-e lens and M-24EX-flash.
