I want to use this thread to document all of the different types of animals, mostly insects, that I find in my food forest!

Animals of all shapes and sizes make their way into the food forest. From large deer that seem to target my most prized plants, to the almost invisible wasps that help to keep other bugs in balance.

Having a large biodiversity of both animals and plants (I'm going to document plants in a separate thread) seems like it has balanced out my small food forest ecosystem, and has created a healthier and more vibrant and alive area that can produce tons of amazingly healthy food with very little work!
You didn't tell me he was so big. Unlike this tiny ad:
