This gravestone marker from a New England cemetery caught my eye. It symbolizes the Lady Bird, which appeared on gravestones in the colonial era and represents the soul flying to heaven. Another message in the image is the bird looking at its tail–which is a mark of prosperity. An interesting mix of the secular and the spiritual!
Here’s a closeup of Lady Bird shot with a macro lens. I think it’s interesting, but almost too close to be meaningful. It’s hard to figure out what you’re seeing, but still I like the texture of the stone, which almost looks like granite. In the balance, I prefer the first shot taken at a distance. Do you?
