Still In Use

Lest you think that Arlington National Cemetery is no longer an active burial ground, I spotted this horse drawn hearse in use while I was there. I kept thinking I was hearing horses, when I saw a single rider go by behind me down a hill. I turned, raised the camera, and saw a team of six horses pulling a coffin at a rather quick gallop. I only managed to squeeze off a few pictures, and those are from far away and entirely uncomposed. But you get the idea.
