Last egg "standing" Picture

Winning entry, with a score of:
By Lodd
Contest goal:

In this contest your goal is to take a photo of 'the last one'. Meaning you will photograph, for example, a last petal on a flower, a last leaf in a tree, a last cookie on a plate, a last man in the train station... And so on.

Pick whatever subject you like, as long as it expresses 'the last', not 'the first'. Your photo should not need additional explanation for understanding it, it must be very clear from the photo itself, but to be safe, mention in your description what it represents.

Good luck!

Status: finished. Check out the winners below!

cocor: It's ok if you have ONE leaf on a tree. But let's take a shot of a man in a train station. How do you know he's the first or the last? The same goes for lots of things. A shot showing a fork or bird or a pillow -would be considered as "last one"? ( 5 years and 2745 days ago )
FallingHorse: What if the one leaf on the tree is the first one for the season - how will you know the difference? ( 5 years and 2745 days ago )
UncleJimmy: @ Fallinghorse...because if it's the first leaf I would suppose there would be other buds visible, if it were the last, I would expect to see utterly naked branches surrounding the last leaf. ( 5 years and 2744 days ago )
kyricom: Seems like a lot of entries are confusing "lone" with "last." ( 5 years and 2744 days ago )
iquraishi: I'm already scratching my head thinking about "lone" and "last".. hey wait.. I can take a pic of the last hair left on my head after the scratching and confusion is done.. hehe.. ( 5 years and 2744 days ago )
FallingHorse: @ itsmymoment - I know that but I am just saying as en example - how would we know it's the first or last in most shots as Cocor asked - we have to take the artists word for it that it was the last. There might be one cookie on a plate but how do we know there aren't more in the fridge ... because the artist said so. So perhaps the theme would have been better of to suggest lone also being considered as last ( 5 years and 2744 days ago )
UncleJimmy: I see your point...we are seeing many shots that are quite obviously a lone and not a last ( 5 years and 2743 days ago )
jawshoewhah: Why do only half the entries say on them? ( 5 years and 2741 days ago )
athousandwords: I was wondering the same thing... Why do some of the entries have on them??? ( 5 years and 2739 days ago )
jawshoewhah: I almost thought it was a user doing it until I noticed it on... half the entries. ( 5 years and 2739 days ago )
