Leaf-Cutter Ants

Leaf-Cutter Ants

by in Colombia, Going Nomadic, South America, Things You Dont See At Home


There are a whole bunch of leaf cutter ants in the Colombian countryside.   Everywhere you go there are lines of these ants marching along roads and trails.   These ants can destroy a tree in one night.  This was one ant carrying a flower petal across the porch.
