15th Annual Smithsonian Magazine Photo Contest Natural World
Unique Love

I took thia scene while on a garbage fire project. I accidentally saw this scene and felt so sad and pain in my heart. First, I was thinking this female dog is doing normal breastfeeding to her little babies. But, when I looked carefully to her, she was already dead with injuries. Even with injuries, she took care of her babies until death. She is an animal, but show how great the love of a mother is!
