Here's the ticks

Tick-trefoil earns the tick part of that name.  Fortunately, these ticks can't suck on any sucker that gets to close.  As annoying as it is to be stuck with them, they're not without value.  Tick-trefoils are valuable wildlife food.  Birds and mammals from large to small graze them, including an occasional outdoorsman curious about the taste.  The kernel of these little fruit sections has a curiously nutty and not unpleasant flavor.
