These strange shapes climbing the dome in this magnificent landscape are not statues created by some conceptual artist. Tiny spinifex termites built those amazing structures using soil cemented with their own excreta.

The mound provides protection for the termite colony from the sun, rain and flood. It is also a storehouse for plant fibre which is their staple diet.

It's amazing to think that small termites can build a mound so tall Smile. Well captured and most interesting image, Jean-Noel. Carol

I've seen quite a few on flat ground with soil, but on the hill/cliff side with a rock base - amazing... and very well captured.
