A lone Atta texana forager carries what looks like a large red berry or closed flower bud precariously down a plant stem. Part of the charm of these leafcutters to humans is their infrequent foraging of large colorful materials. The sight of these rather spiny, dull-colored ants carrying very colorful flowers or somesuch organic matter is sure to bring a smile to even the most jaded traveller.
