Prairie Rebirth: America’s last great Tallgrass Prairie has begun again the springtime ritual of fire, death, and rebirth. Lines of fire arc across the Flint Hills consuming last year’s dead grasses to make way for this spring’s lush growth.

Shot on assignment for National Geographic Magazine. For the next several days I’ll feature this annual spectacle on @JimRichardsonNG. #FlintHillsSaga #nature @natgeocreative #kansas
