My Own Little Jungle Corner

I really love this picture, though I am not quite sure why. I think it is because it makes my yard look so lush and jungle like. In fact, that's just an optical illusion of the zoom lens plus me kneeling down to get the shot at ground level.

This is just my swiss chard (which is at the edge of my vegetable garden) silhouetted against my corner perennial bed (which includes monarda fistulosa about to bloom, prairie coreopsis, and catmint (plus a few weeds here and there).

It's just a striking color combination with all that greenery and the two goldfinches perched there checking out the plants. Didn't see two? Look closer, there's a male goldfinch in the center and a female in the top right corner.
