Travel Tuesday || Sunday Traveler || Repost || PERUVIAN ANTS

When I first started my blog, I didn't have many followers.  Now that I have a few more, I'm going to repost some of my very earliest posts, especially related to travel.  Hope you enjoy!

These are the coolest ants, ever.  It's such a funny sight to walk upon a row of walking leaves!  We took great care not to step on any of them!  I wish I had a better camera so I could have gotten closer shots!  

(By the way, these are leaf-cutter ants.  They are tiny ants that cut leaves and carry them back to their nest.  They pile them up to make a compost in which to grow fungi, which they eat.  You can read about it here.)

This picture was taken in a village called San Jose, right outside of Pucallpa, Peru.
