Insects of the Costa Rica Rainforest

These leaf ants were everywhere you turned.
Their paths were funny to see.
Looked like little leaves moving in a line. Appears to be one of the bugs that help the environment by making holes in the leaves.
An ugly ant.
This leaf ant doesn't realise this leaf is rather large for him.

Ohhhh--made me shiver. I'm not a bug person, but some can be so pretty. That green bug looks just like some kind of leaf..

Great shots, Leedra.
Hugs,
Betsy

Betsy - It is a leaf, the ant is dragging the leaf. (If you are talking about 1st or 4th photo.)
