    Wildfires change a landscape in no time... This is a sad setting. In Australia, nature has adapted to an extent. The soil is generally poor, thus ashes from the burnt vegetation help putting nutrients back into the soil. Feeders move to another area (if they can escape), giving the plants a chance to become established before they are nibbled on again. Eucalyptus trees are especially good at recovering from a fire, leaves will grow straight out of the trunk until the branches have regrown. Some seedpods need the heat of a fire to burst open and release the seeds. Eucalyptus trees are also good at inviting fire to spread due to the high oil content in their leaves. – The regenerative system worked pretty well until humans started to build permanent habitation in the lovely bush settings. And some humans seem to enjoy lighting a fire and see the spectacle they created.

      Nature is truly amazing. And so are humans, but not always in a good way as you pointed out. Very sad :-(

    Very nice capture. it would be really cool if you can go back and get the new growth of the forest to tell a story.

      Thanks very much Adam. Going back is not out of the realm of possibility. I hope I will someday.
