Thanks Kent. These set up house under an old Mugo years ago. So every spring I reach under there and carefully lift a few out by hand as it's too tight to work with a tool.

I just saw your photo that large group of these. In full sun? Is it very wet?

Yep, in the Sandhills there are many places where the aquifer reaches the land surface creating big marshes or even shallow lakes. Go a few feet higher in elevation and you have what are basically dry, grass covered, sand dunes. It's a neat landscape.

Looks neat. Searched "Nebraska Sandhills". Check out this NASA image. http://asterweb.jpl.nasa.gov/g...
Thanks again Kent.
