This photo has been magnified so the tiny tick, that brown blob above the “E” in CENT, can bee seen.
This is Ixodes scapularis.
The deer tick. A dangerous animal hiding under the leaves, under the snow, waiting for warmer weather to come out of their winter home, in hopes of finding a host to feed from. They will find an animal for their next blood meal. It might be you.
There are more ticks in more places.
