This super close up footage shows an Ixodes Ricinus tick waiting to climb onto a passing host. The footage was captured by Stephan Diller using Nanoflight technology – which records a Scanning Electron Microscope image. Common in Europe, North Africa and America, tick's satisfy their nutritional requirements on a diet of blood, a practice known as hematophagy. Feeding on mammals, birds and sometimes reptiles and amphibians they are known carriers of disease including Rocky mountain spotted fever and lyme disease.
