Termites, earth builders

The termites in the image appeared almost immediately after I broke open the top of their meter high nest. The core of the nest, and the source of food for them, is the stump of a tree that was cut some 4-5 years ago. I predict that the tree stump is almost consumed and that the whole thing will fall over soon. Next image is of three termite infested stumps which fell over more recently.
