The purpose

A new nest. You can see the "columns" side of the building: they correspond to devices designed to maintain a constant temperature and appropriate to the good life of the society of termites.

Note that many modern buildings were inspired by these devices: they are before the hour, buildings "zero emission" at least in the sense of temperature control.

This shows us that we have, again and again, much to take in our environment without falling into credulity without reason.

The shooting

The photograph was taken in late morning, with a relatively low brightness, due to vegetation cover. This led to the following adjustments:

The aperture is f/2.8 on an equivalent sensitivity of ISO-160 and a focal length of 11 mm. With these parameters, lma calculated speed is 1 / 34 th: shooting conditions do not allow sharp clarity.

Termite nests are wonderful structures, that man is incapable of explaining. Now a days these nests are becoming rare because of the frequent urbanization.
