Hi Mehmet,
really interesting photo. Very good point of view. Interesting situation.
Thanks for sharing,

Hello Mehmet
You are right they are some species of tick or mite belonging to the order Acarina, as they have 8 legs. Interestingly the young only have 6 legs, which is normal. Good photo, nice composition.
regards yiannis

Interesting subject Mehmet!

Bizleri korkutan keneler demek böyle ürüyorlar...
Özellikle yavruları çok ilginçmiş.
