http://pnwhandbooks.org/insect/node/2824...this is a good link to differentiate between Pacific Damp wood termite and Western Subterranean Termite .
damp background and moisture also adds to these colors.
I did over process it a bit. I was trying to get a clearer idea of it's mouth parts and eyes. It is so tiny. This is the best i could do though. I can see it's mandibles . They look like they could do some pretty good chewing.
This looks like a Western Subterranean Termite but the image appears to be over-saturated so I can't tell if the colors are correct.
looks like a termite
