Chimneys without houses

I remember the first time we saw one of these 20 years ago when we moved here. I don’t know if hubby knew what they were then, but I certainly didn’t.

Peer closer…

Have you guessed what it is yet?

It’s a crayfish chimney! Apparently some can get to be about 8″ tall and can be a nuisance for people trying to mow. This one was only about 3″ in height and is not a problem for our tractor. Plus, we’re not trying to keep a “putting green” yard. This is in the wildflower field and crayfish chimneys are as welcomed as butterflies, birds and other insects there.
