The Working Colony

It's been a long while since I uploaded and shared a photo again here.

This is a colony of termites (more specifically like the Luzon Point Headed termites - Nasutitermes luzonicus). I found it on a nearby wooden post along a muddy trail of Venus Drive. I think each of these bugs are carrying bits o scavenged wood from within or around the post. It's kinda creepy looking at these for a long time as they swarm around the post in such a huge number.
