A pink carpet of ants -- leafcutters carry flowers
(19 seconds, 18.9 Mb)

I was walking through the arboretum at La Selva biological Station when I came across this beautiful flowing pink river. A tree about 20 meters from a leafcutter ant colony was dropping thousands of pink petals. The leafcutters were collecting them and carrying them back to their nest... a delightful sight!
