This is not an image of a patch of bare earth. The area has been covered in a thin crust of soil, saliva, and fecal matter by termites that are harvesting the dead plant matter beneath. This is in a residential midtown neighborhood. I'm hoping to be able to image the actual insects here eventually. Shot this with a Canon PowerShot SD1000 (Elph) in auto mode, then slightly cropped.
