Created by the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases (NIAID), this image depicted a view of the type of environment inhabited by the Rocky Mountain wood tick, Dermacentor andersoni. The photograph was captured by a staff member stationed at the Rocky Mountain Laboratories (RML). The location was described as a sagebrush range land, and mountains. D. andersoni is a known vector for the spread of the rickettsial disease, Rocky Mountain spotted fever (RMSF). Here, a public health field technician was in the process of netting specimens during a D. andersoni field study.
