Your letter to the bugman:  This bug landed on my leg at work while i was eating lunch outside.   There is a canal nearby about and 1/8 of a mile. I was startled and it almost appeared as if the “eye blinked” i could not see any legs on it……i have NO CLUE what this is…….it was moving i just don’t know WHAT was moving……the entire bug seemed to move……i am unsure if it flew away or what…….i grabbed my camera and got this shot  ……THANKS TONS

Possibly a Tick

Dear Tony,
Your image is lacking significant detail, and our best guess on this is that you encountered a Tick.

Wow…..thanks a lot for getting back from yesterday so quickly.
That picture of a tick looks about right……I just didn’t see any legs on mine…..but that is the closest to an explanation as I need.
I was using an old flip phone to take the photo……..
