Some of these Termite nests get rather large, good thing they live up north and not in my area.

My thoughts exactly. It is amazing to see them and stand next to them. The place is littered with them and it is amazing the colour change with the different dirt colours.

I had expected there would be lots of wood around the nest. I guess the termites must commute to work. Having a human stand next to the nest is a good way to dramatize its size.

It does, but she is only 5'1", so maybe not quite to scale.

My wife is 4'10". but I use her to demonstrate scale.

Glad that's not in my backyard. Quite impressive. Good image too. Annie certainly shows off the magnitude of termite industriousness. Thanks.
