locals say that below these ant fortresses they find huge amounts of grains stored by these hard working ants over a long time !!

That is really awesome! Great macro! Who would ever think an ant hill would be of interest. Raise your hand if you do. I DO! :)

It actually called Ant Fortress or Ant hill. Its a unique style of building Ant hill of Harvestor Ant from Western ghats... no where else...
I am proud of these little hard working insects... which might be impressed our ancestors to build Hill forts with such protecting walls.
