Hassel Island, USVI
Click on the picture to enlarge and it is obvious how the jungle has taken over. The above picture reminds me of Vanuatu in the sense the Morning Glory vines had taken over the landscape there as well. The Army discovered how quickly Morning Glory covers, so they planted it near installations to provide cover from airplanes. Morning Glory quickly over powers the host plant and becomes dominant in the jungle. Another introduced pest!
