Antward Scissorhands in the Amazon, foot-long lines of leafcutter ants cart sizable leaf chunks back to their nests to use as compost. RISE UP Bakers at Nashivlle’s renowned Loveless Café get going every morning at 3 a.m. in order to turn out 1.5 million buttermilk biscuits annually. TUNNEL VISION Spring driving on the Tateyama Kurobe Alpine Route-a highway that transects the northern Japanese alps-delivers a different kind of great wall experience: along the Yukino-Otani corridor, snow walls rise up to 60 feet above car level. WATCH YOUR STEP Visitors to the 1,109-foot-tall Macau Tower can bungee jump off the skyscraper, climb ladders to the highest point, or walk around the outside of the building at 765 feet and  glimpse views of Hong Kong. ORANGE YOU GLAD Come spring, orange and yellow Namaqualand daisies blanket most of the South African mining town of Nababiep. DON’T BLINK Wedged between a bar and a sandwich shop in Somerville, Massachusetts, the new, 16-inch wide art Museum-or “micro museum”-claims to be the world’s smallest.
