      Thank you! I wasn't part of the fire, but got to watch it from the fenceline. The whole fire was a test to watch how buffelgrass (invasive grass in southern Arizona) burns under various wind conditions. This was preplanned for months. I believe I've seen some invasive species on your own photostream?

      I love the range of oranges, yellows, and browns in this one. Just beautiful.
