What else on the grapes?

Jump to Comments

You can appreciate from the image below why with the rain we started to get some rot on the bunches. As those shrivelled grapes get wet they begin to attract a range of different insects to the grapes as they begin to rot.

Thought I would try to photograph a few of the insects on the grapes before they came off the vines as there are usually some fabulous spiders and other insects to be found. The pictures aren’t great as I had the wrong lens on, low light and without a tripod.
I will try to get these identified in time but for now I will just put the images up.

The image below is of a Nairobi Eye fly which leaves a nasty blistery burn on your skin if you rub it.
