|Texas Leafcutter Ants|
While photographing in New Braunfels in central Texas, I noticed a trail of leaf cutter ants. I knew Texas had these ants native but I had never seen them here; yet alone in such a great photography location. I soon learned all about Texas Leaf Cutter ants by watching them and reading about them. The ants targeted an evergreen Cherry Laurel tree since it was one of the only source of food during February when this image was taken. I was amused watching these tiny creatures in all types of weather carrying different shapes and sizes while working amazing well together.
