Great capture Colin. It has been a long time since I have seen one this big. The composition and setting here is excellent.

Very well done and thanks for posting

Although I dont find the shot very artistic, it is quite descriptive, and the subject VERY interesting. You had a great opportunity to explain the incredible efficient cooling system and organization it has, or to complement with a macro of he insect. I liked very much to see it, thanks.

WOW, that really is some city. Very good pov makes the termitary look huge. Nice detail,s and colours - very interesting picture wish I could say the same about the note.

"Our small town was built on a termite mound"

Well that's the saying at least. We have a lot of problems with these critters. I agree with Felipe one has a nice opportunity to expand on the subject. I have a photo of them eating their way through solid concrete.

Nice shot, it's been a while since I have seen a 4m mound. When they get 4cm we erradicate the pests here.
