Anyone home?

A group of us set out to photograph wild flowers and explore with our children. One of the children found a miniature tower that lead to a hole underground. What on earth was it? A tiny home? It looked newly excavated. Upon closer inspection someone noticed that a rabbit dropping had been used as building material instead of a piece of grit. As we made our way, we found more, some older, some very new. We later found out these towers belong to wolf spider holes. We never saw spiders.
