Deer tick

It never feels good to find that I've tracked a tick inside the house, especially a deer tick, but fortunately, I think I got this one before it bit me. Living on the East Coast, I'm surprised that I haven't been bitten by one yet, but I am generally careful with long pants and bug spray. I wasn't expecting to see this one out in January, but we did have some erratic weather that winter. Somerville, MA, January 16, 2018.
