After living in Costa Rica for over 8 years I can only say that life has been outstanding. As a Photographer I have photographed a number of beautiful and incredible sights and the following is a small example of how close I am to amazing discoveries.andnbsp; You may know we have leaf cutter ants in the jungle. They are very hard workers with a very important job to do and I have a story about the strength and persistence of one of them.
In his travels across my driveway, in front of my most beloved flowering tree that he and his friends were devastating, a leaf cutter ant we will name Bill picked up a matchstick, you know, one of the wooden ones. This brave soul dropped its leaf and started to carry the match upright as if it were a leaf. Very impressive! I wanted to lessen his load so I carefully picked up the matchstick. Astonishingly Bill would not let go and came with the match, his little feet trying to get traction in the open air.
