Bushfires and Kites

Today I passed a wild fire, and on the front I saw hundreds of kites and other hawks swarming the front catching the insects fleeing the fire.

Kites have also been known to start fires and spread the flames through the region in order to get a good meal out of the oppertunity.

I am pleased to publish my own photographs covering this event. It was a bit of an experience passing close by a wildfire. As soon as I got a few pictures, things escelated, and I decided to move out of the area very quickly. Fires in Australia can be very unpredictable and dangerous.

This fire was hard to photograph. But this fire did go on to burn a very large patch of land between Darwin and Katherine in the NT.
