Mr. Miller talks with the students about a poster image on the wall in the EPIC facility. After returning from lunch one afternoon, he found a traveling companion stuck to his shirt. He subsequently prepared the tick for imaging and now has a beautifully colored portrait of the insect to remind him of their time together.
