T - Termite

111/365 - Termite


We are fully aware that there are termites near our house, and we are taking efforts to eliminate them. However, they're still there. :(

This picture was taken near our garden... a twig fell in the soil, and because it rained and I wasn't able to visit the garden, I noticed that the twig looked a little interesting, and as I picked it up, I saw the termites. I didn't know what was in my head that time, I just went back inside the house, grabbed my camera and took pictures of it. Well, most of them weren't there anymore (I guess the sunlight caused them to flee), but this fellow was still there. It was a bit difficult to take pictures of it because it was constantly moving, but I somehow was able to take this picture and I was happy.

... of course after the photo shoot, I sprayed the twig and the soil with termite solution to cure the soil and kill the other termites.

Terrific shot - I might have had a tendency to terminate it, then shoot. :)
