Termites, earth builders

These termite nests were a favorite sightseeing stop for many visitors going to Bosque Santa Lúcia. Eventually the termites decomposed the tree stumps and all the nests fell over on the ground. We used the nesting material you see in the image for fertilizer. What surprised me was the amount of rich dirt under the nests. Next image.
