Caption: Mole hills. Moles are mammals that live in soil, excavating tunnels and burrows. Waste earth is piled above the ground as mole hills, as seen here. A mole is active both day and night, feeding on worms and insects that drop into its tunnels. Moles can cause a great deal of damage to lawns and gardens. These mole hills were dug by the European mole (Talpa europaea). Photographed in March.
