Yesterday's photo showed a photo of a hole in the trough in the grass. This is a closer view of the hole. It reveals that the hole was not made by a rodent, but by leaf cutter ants. They were carrying a steady stream of leaves down the whole.
As I have mentioned before, leaf cutter ants choose only certain types of leaves, not to eat them, but to feed the leaves to a fungus underground so that the ants can eat the fungus.
There was not a lot of light at the entrance to the hole, as it was very late in the afternoon. This photo is therefore not the best, but I decided to take matters into my own hands, as I will show you tomorrow.
This week we have photos of the architecture of Portugal posted on our Viva la Voyage travel photo site.
