I have NEVER seen these; I wonder if they range into Southern Ontario? Nice photo and an attractive little beastie, thanks!

My book says Maine and S. Quebec Gramazoo so I don't think that's you, but then I don't know Canada very well.

Your running commentary here has made my day, Diohio! My ribs ache so much, but, I was really attracted by yet another amazing, breath-taking pic! Many congratulations on your "First"!

hehe! We've fixed the problem that caused lots of comments now.

I don't know, what some people say when they think no-one's listening ;o)

Oh My! Well thanks Di for the best chuckle that I have had all day!! I am just north of Buffalo, New York, so it sounds like their range is a little east of Ontario, but I will still keep an eye on the wild grape, lol!!

Oh goodie... now that my sides are no longer aching... I'm 45 minutes drive east of southern Quebec....I might just have a chance to view this lovely...as I said before I will now keep my eyes trained on my VC.Grammazoo is very much south and west of my location...and in or near the grape growing areas of Southern Ontario... don't count yourself out on this one Grammazoo.
