Looking for footage

Hi,

I am looking for some "stock footage" of a couple of things:

Forest fire. Hopefully pine trees in a NON mountainous area and
taken from the forest floor perspective.

A crop duster spraying a field.

My wife and I are funding a nature documentary concerning the
reintroduction of Ospreys into southern Michigan out of our own pockets.
The footage would be used in the introduction where we discuss the reasons for
why we need to reintroduce the species. We hope to have
the program broadcast on PBS affiliates, and therefore are looking
to those who actually own the footage so we can get the proper clearances
PBS requires.

This is the kind of stuff we want but cannot really afford:

Thanks!

Thanks for the response, but I really need a shot that is very similar
to those on the URL I posted. I have lots of pine footage, but
I'm need forest fire footage with the fire RAGING.

True, but that footage is not really the kind I'm after.

Most of that area that burned in Cali is very hilly - mountainous.
I don't want to see steep hills or mountains.
(This is supposed to be Michigan in 1871)

If you go to:

http://www.buyoutfootage.com/pages/.../pd_na_002.html

out of all those pics, the top middle
picture is the shot I want, but this documentary has
depleated my savings, so I am looking for footage that
has a smaller price tag.

And of course, who ever supplies it will get a nice credit.
