near to Dodford, Worcestershire, Great Britain

Anthills
Anthills
The Yellow Meadow Ant (Lasius flava) makes the grassy hillocks often seen in open pasture especially on hill-sides which don't get ploughed. The nests build up often over many years with soil being deposited on their upper surface as tunnels are excavated below ground level. Grass growing on the surface migrates outward through the new soil and so the hill gets higher and larger with age.
