A difficult picture.

This leopardess had killed a monkey in Zambia’s South Luangwa National Park. The monkey’s baby was still alive and clinging to its mother. Igor Altuna watched as the predator walked calmly back to her own baby. Her cub played with the baby monkey for more than an hour before killing it, almost as if it had been given live prey as a hunting lesson. Igor Altuna / Wildlife Photographer of the Year

A difficult picture to see and a reminder of how nature is.
