I've been having a lot of fun with my new camera.

Leaf cutters outside the shade houses, decimating a tree.  There were so many ants in this one tree, you could actually hear the click, click of them cutting the leaves as you walked by.

I took a few minutes out of following monkeys to follow a line of army ants back to their bivouac. These writhing balls of ants always kind of creep me out!

Some other cool things I saw in the forest.

Tetragonisca angustula--a (relatively) docile, stingless bee

And a couple of spider monkeys behaving themselves.  We like them a lot better when they aren't raiding our labs.
