You are right about the fire, this photo is done at the semi-wild
nature park 1km far from my home, where is the pond for the
mallard and wood ducks. At that area of the park the grass
(or vegetation) it size can go high as the height of a human,
these latest years I am seeing (want time I was surprised
when I saw) that area of the park the grass is burned,
I think it is the fireman of the city they are doing that,
but I can not say for what reason they are doing it.
Since (a couple of years ago) that area's grass is fired
for me walking trough it (for photography), it became easy,
because before when the grass (vegetation) was as tall as
a human passing from that area was not easy or impossible.
Bonne fin de semaine.
