Leaf cutter ants are very common in Costa Rica’s rain forests. These little creatures transport parts of plants to their underground ant hill. There, they breed fungi that serve as food for them. The ants use a number of different leaves and flower petals, which are soft enough for them. In Costa Rica, the courtyard of the Laguna del Lagarto Lodge is filled with colorful flowers that are continuously “victims” of ant invasions. Concerning this photo, my aim was to get many different petals and ants in the same image. I have been photographing the ants for several days and I made a total of 12,000 images.
