Winged Reproductive Termite, Zootermopsis angusticollis

Post by Charles Krebs »

This time of year I will sometimes see winged adult reproductive termites fluttering around at dusk.
I'm pretty sure this species is Zootermopsis angusticollis, the Pacific Dampwood Termite.

Beautiful. Not much more to say, this is perfect. I need to work a bit the HF when I get time.

Super Stack Charles. I love the side profile view and everything is razor sharp as usual. The antennae and palps are fantastic :shock:

Good Lord! This one is magnificent, hadn´t seen it till now, but it´s worth bringing it up on the first ranks again, ´cos that´s where it belongs, IMO!

Best wishes from an awestruck

thats got to be one of the best macros i have ever seen. incredible the only tiny tiny thing is around the hair on the upper leg but that doesnt even matter compared to how good it is.

Thanks all!

Raul... there are a couple shots showing some of my set-up here:
http://www.photomacrography.net/forum/v ... php?t=2825
I normally use a Lumedyme flash with two flash heads on small boom arms instead of the small Nikon units pictured here (it was getting repaired at the time)

Jordan... yup. I missed that one stacking artifact. After you mentioned it that's all I could see #-o ... so now it's gone! :wink:

OK, this may be a new record for bumping old posts.

Prior to edward137's comment, the thread was over 10 years old -- previous last post was Sept 13, 2007.

grgh, I think you missed the fact that Charles replied to Jordan as follows:
Jordan... yup. I missed that one stacking artifact. After you mentioned it that's all I could see #-o ... so now it's gone! :wink:
In other words, there's not supposed to be anything to see now -- the image has been edited to fix the problem!
