Bush fire

Bush fire, originally uploaded by gypsy woman1.

This was a controlled burn that we came across as we headed towards Kakadu National Park. Patch work burning is used during the cold, dry season to keep the inflammable grasses under control. It is still scary when you pass this close to one. The black kites were diving on all the small creatures that were racing ahead of the flames. It was an amazing experience, but I would hate to be caught up in a bush fire, it spread along so quickly.
