Amazon Pics Part 31

This very tiny guy (a few mm) I am guessing is an immature homopteran of some sort.


Ants farming something...are these aphids?

Another nice set of images there Ken :D , the first and second especially so. The first, again, appears to be a very young and immature tree hopper and the second, I would assume are the ants riding herd on a number of "mealy bugs." :D

Great photographs Ken, with unusual creatures! :D
Only ants looks common for me but I think Gordon would be delighted with details. First one makes a great subject for Jody's macro setup. :wink:

Noticing of my "a" and "the" and other grammar

Wonderful shots. The ants are tending immature leafhoppers, not an uncommon situation. The ants I am not sure of the Ident on but the look like a Dolichoderus sp. However the one feature needed to make the Id for sure is not visible. Either way super.

Great shots Ken. The ants sure look like overlords of an evil regime.

Gordon, now that you mentioned leafhoppers, I can see them. More wonderful photos Ken. The first one is a real cutie :wink:
