Fireline

No Featured Creature post today. School has taken over my life for the next few weeks. I’ll have some guest posts to fill in the gap. In the meantime, here’s my submission for The Daily Post’s weekly photo challenge: “Boundaries.”

It would be hard to think of a situation where boundaries are more important than in prescribed fire! Here’s one of my professors making sure a fire in the North Carolina sandhills doesn’t cross the road and re-ignite all those fallen needles on the other side.

I’m a biologist, GIS nerd, and occasional wildland firefighter living in North Carolina. The many hobbies I enjoy but am bad at include photography, rock climbing, tabletop RPGs, knitting, and orienteering. I write literary short stories and SFF novels, and hope to someday figure out why it doesn’t work the other way around. You can find me yelling about politics, gaming, and writing on Twitter (@bethanyharvey) or about under-appreciated wildlife at OverlookedNature.com.
