Red Admiral, Varteg Road Cemetery, Blaenavon, Pontypool 5 July 2014

Red Admiral, Varteg Road Cemetery, Blaenavon, Pontypool 5 July 2014
A Red Admiral (Vanessa atalanta) probably attracted to the white marble of the stone. Appropriately, in grave imagery, a butterfly symbolised resurrection.
The cemetery, on the mountain on the outskirts of Blaenavon, was opened in the early 20th Century and today is in two halves, the original and a newish extension with plenty of burial space.

A good example of "life and death".
