Do you have a cat or dog that goes outside? Were you tramping about in the fields lately? This is a Tick and here is a BugGuide image of an American Dog Tick for comparison. Ticks feed on blood.

Don’t want to create a panic but it should be said that those carry two bad diseases, Lyme disease, and Rocky Mountaiin Spotted Fever. If that tick bit you enough to draw blood see a doctor for either disease.
Any time you hike in wooded areas check your entire body for these bugs after the hike.
