Crawfish chimneys

At this time of the year, farm fields and roadside ditches across West Tennessee are dotted with small mud chimneys which are laboriously created by crayfish.

As they burrow out their tunnels, they dig up mud, make it into balls, take the balls to the surface and set them in place — layer by layer.  It is interesting to observe the different architectural structures they create.
