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.

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

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/viewtopic.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 d'oh! ... so now it's gone! Wink
