Every summer in my State of Victoria we are always on high alert for extreme bush fires. Australia has one of the most effective fire & rescue personal anywhere in the world. However, loss of life, infrastructure damage & the loss of endangered animals are a consistent reminder to all of us to keep vigilant.

On the positive side, there are scenes like this charred tree bringing back new life to sustain our forests for future generations.

Victoria, Australia.

    What an interesting shot and back story, Chris. Do you realize that Steve Irwin has been gone ten years this September? Your respect for the environment has always recalled memories of Steve.

    Thankyou, Dick! No, I had no idea Steve's 10th anniversary was coming up this year. I still recall that sad day so vividly as do so many Australians & people who loved his cheeky Aussie mannerism but more importantly his love for the Wildlife. I recall posting a moving video tribute of Steve, sung by one of our most adored country & western singer/songwriters, and one of Steve's best friends, John Williamson. I still play that video & it always brings a tear. I'll add a link for that memorial tribute below! The Irwin's are still running the Australian Zoo & are so very popular wherever they go 

    Here is the Link, I hope it works, if not copy & paste it I guess?

    The link captures the spirit! Will Australia plan any commemorations this September? I haven't heard too much about Teri. Bindi is a lovely young lady.

    Thanks for fixing that link, Dick :) I'm not sure if there will be a commemoration but I hope so!! The 3 Irwin's were recent guests on Australia's version of "I'm a celebrity, get me out of here!". It's a real credit to them for keeping thier beloved Steve's legacy alive :)
