Because imitation is a sincere form of flattery, our tribute to Eric today is to post a photo the imitates the techniques that he often uses, which include ground level perspectives and tilted angles.
Here is a ground level, tilted shot of a leaf cutter any carrying a leaf across the parking lot of our condo building. I am sure that Eric has not had the opportunity to photograph any leaf cutter ants in Paris, but if he were in Costa Rica, I imagine that this is the type of photo he would take.
Leaf cutter ants are remarkable. They carry the leaves back to their underground nests not to eat the leaves, as you might think. They feed the leaves to a fungus, and eat the fungus. They know the type of leaves that the fungus likes and select only those leaves to carry back.
I would like to broaden the theme of this tribute to Eric by extending my appreciation and admiration for all of the Daily Photo bloggers and to the people who operate the City Daily Photo site that keeps us linked and coordinated.
Tomorrow I will resume the series of our return from our hike down the Playa Langosta beach.
This is a fun theme day to see what everyone did with the various techniques. Click here to view thumbnails for all participants
