A grass fire on the open plain. These are very much part of Africa and it's ecology. The Cattle Egrets, Licac Breasted Rollers and many other birds gather for a feast. As insects ect escape the flames these are ready to pick them off. With the heat haze and a flock of Egrets an impression of Africa.

One could call this a crackling image - the "frenzy" of eating is incredible - the flames and smoke add to the atmosphere of the image. Nice on.
