Final Nesting Place

At dusk at this time of year we see lots of flying termite queens coming out of the forest and looking for a place to start a new nest. They will fly around for only a short time before landing and dropping their wings. Unfortunately these queens chose our birdbath as a landing spot. Termites are poor swimmers so all they accomplished was producing interesting patterns and texture on the water surface. Thanks to ‘hernibs’ for pointing them out to me!
