Leaf Cutter Ants

Throughout Costa Rica we saw leaf cutter ants.  They carried pieces of leaves along a highway, working diligently.  It was hard to get a focus and a photo.  One of these shows a highway and the pieces of green on the highway are carried by ants.  The brown photo allows a bit more contrast.  Also is a leaf that has been cut by them so you can see the precise pattern they seem to use to cut the leaves.
