  1. Thank you for sharing! I have a growing interest in plant pests/diseases, so I will have to commit this one to memory! We plan on growing several native grapes once we get settled on our land, so this is good to know! Posted 4 years ago
    1. I've been "shooting" galls and mines and what have you ever since I started looking at arthropods some ten years ago, but never came around doing much with it. Very interesting field though, me thinks, but it swamped with other stuff too so it'll remain a minor sidetrack for now I'm afraid ... Posted 4 years ago
  2. Your gall collection is so diverse! I love it! Posted 4 years ago
    1. Last nights uploads were basically old images that I had sitting ready because I had uploaded them some years ago to an old website that has disappeared now. But I'll try and sort through some other nice examples in my backlog of old images sometime soon :o) Posted 4 years ago
