Weaver ant with scale insects

Oecophylla smaragdina


Small circular 'things' attached to the leaves of a lime tree out in the forest. The Weaver ants are trying to prise them off I think.


Citrus latifolia - Lime tree in the forest


I thought perhaps they were Tortoise Beetles as this is very close to the location where I spotted one last week
