Very well timed shot - may be tempted to crop from each side - but well taken

I really like this photograph and so I voted for it.

For a start, I think this photograph is technically very good. In my opinion, the exposure is correct and the focus is sharp.

Typing about focus, there is a rule of thumb that if your main subject has a face then you should focus on the eyes. If this animal has eyes, then they are closed. So you are excused for not focussing on them.

Anyway, your sharply focussed main subject stands out from the blurred background.

Finally, I take it Doctor Who rescued you and your camera from this creature....

Thank you for your feedback. In the absence of eyes, I thought the teeth and whiskers were the next best thing! This is a female and they are incredibly docile, so I did not need rescuing. Luckily, the bull was not around - they can be aggressive if you get too close to their harem.
