Mite on leg of walkingstick

Mite on leg of walkingstick
Meadow Farm, Winneshiek County, Iowa, USA
August 27, 2016
In the process of observing and handling a walkingstick, I noticed a mite attached to one of its legs. This image shows the mite as nothing more than a red dot attached at the "knee" (far right side of image); the other images are the best close-up shots I could get of the mite (the walkingstick was alive and well, which made photography a challenge!).
