Weekend Family Project

It started with my husband pointing out the remains of a leaf to me; he thought it would make a good photo. It was first in colour but I changed it to black and white before sending it to Anna. She began to tinge with a bit of green and overlaid the words I'd written. Then it just seemed natural to add the Lyme-Awareness ribbon in the corner. Anna finished it off with a bit of framing...c'est tout...a Spring poster. Now, can you find the five ticks in this picture?

I think this should go on any materials, pamphlets, leaflets, whatever for your support group and beyond. It is truly superb.

And I can't see the ticks. And that's the scary part.

Thank you Kim! I'll see if anyone else wants a try, before I give the answer to five hiding places on this poster.

When heading down a trail in the park, the woods, or your yard, remember to:
Tuck your pants in your socks.
Wear light-coloured, long-sleeved shirts and hat.

...And remember folks..."I wanna check you for ticks," is not just a bad country song. Check yourself and check each other!

What a beautiful creation, Lorraine!

Lorraine Hart said...

Thank you Stephanie!

Okay...the answer is...
There are five dotted i's in the text. At this time of year the nymph ticks are this poppy seed size and approximately 30% are thought to carry the Bb bacteria that causes Lyme.
