2014, Day 2 - Hiding in plain sight

While visiting Ek Balam we had to walk though some thinned jungle.  The path was lined with trees and I could hear a crack crack cracking noise coming from one in particular.  Upon closer inspection I found a number of well camouflaged butterflies were gathering to drink the sap leaking out from a couple wounds.  Soon there were bees and flies drinking the nectar that was oozing from the tree and, being the unashamed nerd that I am, I had to switch to my trusty macro and take some pictures.
