I know just what you mean Ronny, I won't even get on other sites unless I have too, I already spend too much time on this one.

Great shots, but I think they are mites, rather than ticks, but the idea is the same:

"Great fleas have little fleas upon their backs to bite 'em, And little fleas have lesser fleas, and so ad infinitum. And the great fleas themselves, in turn, have greater fleas to go on; While these again have greater still, and greater still, and so on."
[1872 A. De morgan Budget of Paradoxes 377]

Feel like scratching?

all off your comments have put me on a search to see if I can find some bugs that might be on those mites.

Something in the idea as this shot where you've got a springtail on top of a treehopper, and that treehopper isn't that big. (don't know the correct setting of the shot anymore something between a 3:1 and 5:1 macro



I guess this springtail is around 1/8 the size of those mites.

Cheers

Ronny
