I just had to post this: A magpie picking ticks off a mule deers nether regions. Taken at dusk last night, March 31st, at Sheldon Antelope refuge in Nevada.
We were driving back to camp after a fruitless day of antelope hunting when Amy spotted a bunch of ears.
With no time to get out and set up a tripod, I grabbed my D800 with the Nikkor 200-400mm with 2x extender mounted and hand-held it out the window. The deer hung around for awhile and then two magpies came in to begin a tick feast.
When we got into our trailer we found we had a bunch of ticks on us - and no magpies to help us. So we showered and picked ticks. Then it rained all night - in the desert. Today the roads were too muddy to drive. The gods were not with us.
