  1. OMG! There are maybe hundreds of most common fruits, vegetables and domestic animals not listed in JungleDragon! We are all chasing strange and rare species and pay much less attention to the most abundant ones.
    Beautiful capture, BTW!

    1. This is an old and very cropped photo to avoid the house and the backyard that were captured. It's not the best photo and I wouldn't have thought of it if it was not for Ferdy's comment here:
      Vitis vulpina - Frost Grape Wild, old growth woody vine with (very sturdy) tendrils climbing and wrapping around hardwoods and pines in a mostly shaded mixed hardwood forest. Bark peels away easily from older sections of the vine. Clusters of purple to dark blue berries/fruits opposite leaves on stem. Leaves large (about the size of my hands) and somewhat heart shaped, smooth top surface, and very lightly lobed/serrated.<br />

''Vitis vinifera'', the common grape vine, is a species of ''Vitis'', native to the Mediterranean region, central Europe, and southwestern Asia, from Morocco and Portugal north to southern Germany and east to northern Iran. There are currently between 5,000 and 10,000 varieties of ''Vitis vinifera'' grapes though only a few are of commercial significance for wine and table grape production.

It is a liana growing to 32 m in length, with flaky bark. The leaves are alternate, palmately.. more
