Timbó, continued

Well, I can only speculate that the long-horned beetle(s) did know what they were doing when they "sawed" of that branch of the timbó vine, as reported on the last post. Saturday I discovered that the beetle(s) had removed four out of five branches of the plant. The one you see to the right is the only survivor and I wonder for how long. To the left you can see how neatly they "saw" the branches off. A handsaw couldn't have done better.
