Hi Renzy.
I have downloaded the original photo and zoomed in on the animal, then added back to new photo to aid in verification.

Thanks michaelb, sorry yes we were driving out quite late so not the best light for photos, but we got a good look at her and the male she was with. She was definitely pregnant. Apparently a few seen in this location.
