Description: The heavily pregnat leopard "Fig" is resting on a tree on one of their last days on earth.

Story from behind the lens: When I took this shot, no one could have guessed what a dramatic ending Fig would have. She was heavily pregnant and we expected her to retire and give birth to her young any day. However, it turned out completely differently. Lions found and killed Fig. Nature is sometimes cruel.
