We had three on us in the past two weekends. One Jessica was throwing out the window and dropped it in the car. I usually find them on me Monday mornings at work.

Bob, great photos. They show very clearly an easy way to identify a black-legged tick. The ventral (belly) view shows what's called the adanal groove, or an arch that surrounds the tick's anus. No other genus of ticks has this and it's a very quick way to ID what you have.
