We visited the World Museum in Liverpool last weekend and one of our particular favourite sections was the Bug House. I have mentioned in other posts about how much Meg and Eli love mini beasts so you can imagine their delight. I steered away from most of the creepy crawlies but did enjoy watching the leaf-cutter ants.
They are the strongest animal (for their size) in the world and it was utterly fascinating to watch these teeny ants carry parts of a leaf often four times the size of them up the rope on their back.
I took a lot of photos trying to capture them; they move so blinking fast and the lighting was quite grim making it tricky but I hope you can get the idea from this shot.
