Bunch of Grapes

Dear as you like,
The photo you attached is a bunch of grapes.

Ed. Note:  We checked out the link and found an image of an insect.
The insect on the website is a Flower Longhorn, possibly the Banded Longhorn,
Typocerus velutinus, based on photos posted to BugGuide.  Adults eat nectar and pollen, so they are likely beneficial in that they will help to pollinate the pumpkins.  Larvae feed on decaying hardwood such as oak.

      We did not want to be so presumptuous as to assume everyone can tell a bunch of grapes from an insect.
