I was actually intending to comment on the lovely grebe photo but instead am at the comments for the grapes - guess if I drink too much champagne I might join the duck.

They pick the graps by hand with a tool, then they carry the grapes into plastic boxes 50 kg each and a last they use tractors to drive the crop to the cellar...
May be a future post about.

Oh, lots of grapes :)
I could get almost same kind of pictures as last one, but they could be currants.
are those people gathering grapes, which the machine leaves behind ?
