I saw these Nasute termites migrating and got this idea of doing slow shutter shots of them.

I always look forward to an insect shot with "orionmystery" next to the thread title. These are great - the long exposure is a stroke of genius. You get a real sense of busy movement. As always, well done!

Another fine fine set.

Makes it look like a termite superhighway.

Well done! I really love the movement vs. the static ones in these!

Thanks, Forkie, davesnotthere11, Buckster for looking and commenting. Much appreciated!
