The Pollinator, Arlington National Cemetery

This image was captured on my first visit to Arlington National Cemetery. While walking between different burial plots, I noticed the bright hues of thriving flowerbeds. Upon closer examination, I noticed this bee; diligently pollinating a flower. I was struck by the contrast its vibrant, bustling life brought to the midst of this most hallowed of resting places.
