Tick Identification

Asked July 8, 2020, 6:26 PM EDT

We live in Lebanon, and we came across some very small insects that look like ticks. They’re red in color, with eight legs, while we were doing yard work. We have a lot of trees and some ground level brush. We came across two of them, they didn’t bite us but they were on our skin. We’re curious to know what kind of tick they are, if they are ticks? I’m attaching two photos, I hope the quality is good. Thank you for your help

Thank you for the images. The critter is a clover mite, not a tick.
