Where The Wild Things Grow.,....

Around the corner from my house I found a wild patch of jungle growing along and behind a wire fence.  My eyes had a field day exploring this macro world of vines, flowers, and leaves, and the shots I got that day was well worth the humidity and mosquito bites I endured.

I find when I venture into botanicals I feel compelled to scientifically identify my photo subjects, so I have included their common and scientific names along with their titles......
