Wine & dine

Clusters of dark purple grapes hang hidden below large green leaves. These wild grapes are ripening and disappearing as they do so. Some tumble to the ground, pried loose by a gust of wind. Others are gobbled up by a wide variety of hungry birds, raccoons, opossums, skunks and red foxes. There are few plants that feed as many different species of animals as wild grapes.
