Friday Foto Finder; Alone

A termite mound alone in the Australian desert, surrounded by spiky spinifex.

It decorated itself in an attempt to find a mate.

It didn’t work and it is still alone!

Note: Spinifex is a very spiky grass and is the termite’s main source of food. A single termite mound annually consumes as much grass as a cow. The yellow in the above image are the flower stalks which produce both seed for indigenous food and a heat setting wax which holds stone tips on hunting spears and axes.

What have you found that is alone?

Leave a comment and a link here and we can all come and see.

Next week the challenge will be to find something to match the word “STREET”

  2. What a cool photo! The colors are gorgeous. And then the termite mound looks like a big goofy-faced head.

    Neat info about the grass, too. What a versatile plant!
