Taken while scouting the Shield Ranch Conservation Corps area for two wildlife observation hikes next week. I was very lucky to have Terri Siegenthaler, director and land steward of the ranch, show me around and brainstorm with me about the hikes!

Description from Wikipedia

Termites are a group of eusocial insects that, until recently, were classified at the taxonomic rank of order Isoptera (see taxonomy below), but are now accepted as the infraorder Isoptera, of the cockroach order Blattodea. While termites are commonly known, especially in Australia, as "white ants", they are for practical purposes unrelated to the ants (although they are prey to some ants, including the acrobat ant).
