Olive Blossom Ant Hills

I saw these “volcano” shaped ant hills beneath an olive tree, and noticed that they were constructed from tiny olive flowers. I wonder what use that they make of these little olive blossoms.

Olive Loving Blacktails

Last week I roto-tilled in some manure for next year’s tomatoes;  then yesterday when I came back I noticed deer tracks in the area. There is an olive tree on the northeast corner of the garden, and that seems to be where  most of the activity was. There has been quite a few olives falling onto the ground; and apparently the deer have found these to be quite the delicacy.
They must have come in under the cover of night, since  I have never seen them myself;  although Sarge has espied them in the walnut orchard from time to time. I’m sure that they are Blacktail like these that I have photographed at a different time and place in the area.
