Here is a picture of a peach tree that I planted late in the season two summers ago. A few weeks ago I was happy because it was sprouting an abundant number of peach-lets all over its branch system.

If they had waited until the fruit had fully developed I would have been less pissed off. Instead they helped themselves while the peaches were still green and no bigger than a grape.
Here are pictures of some other threats to my vegetation:
