Avast, me hardies

Cutline of the morning, Sunday thumbsucker division:

A controlled burn in early spring at the Belle Isle Nature Zoo knocked down the island's largest stand of phragmites, a hearty invasive species that choked out native plants.

Hard to say exactly what went on here. Perhaps everyone was caught up in the drama of the Silent Slug Siege (the phragmites photo is with the jump from the story shown at right). Or perhaps they were thinking ahead to tailgating season and the hearty slug-and-reed stews of a crisp Midwestern autumn.

Or perhaps somebody forgot that photographers don't always see it as their mission to look words up before dumping their notes on the desk.
