A Leopardess known as Moma Namiri had stashed a baby wildebeest higher up her Acacia tree fortress as she kept a close eye view on her 2 x 8 week old cubs secured in their Kopje den.  Eastern Serengeti- TZ.

Really a very nice and meaningful shot. I really like the composition so clean and essential, Im like so much the processing in black and white.
