Things that make you go hmmm

While doing IDs for the Florida keys, I came across this:

There are no notes, no explanation, no comment on the picture being taken in a wildfire. The observer’s profile is blank, and their only one page of observations is mostly rather pretty pictures of flowers and mushrooms, with some cute animals. I think I would put this observation in the “Don’t try this at home” category!

But, perhaps, a firefighter on duty at a prescribed burn?
I tried googling, there have been prescribed burns there.

Yes, this looks like a controlled burn.

I have a couple somewhat similar observations myself, from a very much not-controlled burn: https://www.inaturalist.org/observations/20903088

That’s probably a controlled burn.

There is this person from London that posts animals and plants from London (also from the London Zoo or pet shops) to Morocco claiming them to be new species for Morocco. They get suspended regularly. Hmmm.
