Hello Terry, welcome aboard.
It's a decent picture of a very fast moving pet while performing a timed task. Moira has mentioned a lot about the picture itself, so it could not be good to be repetitive. I have not looked at your profile so I do not know your level of skill you believe you have.
I see from the metadata you have used the ''Action scene''. I suspect your picture here is cropped , please do give us feedback so we both get to understand photography a little bit more. Did I say both? I should have said ''all'' meaning all of us who will get to see the picture and try to understand it better so we improve our skills.
I would suggest you though to try to avoid try using the scene modes as you can learn more by taking control of the camera yourself, rather than letting camera decide critical parameters, like ISO for example. Here, despite of all the huge experience and knowledge the people in Canon have, the camera has chosen a rather slow sensitivity to light. As a direct result the picture would take longer to be recorded by the sensor. ISO setting I allows you to set the sensitivity of your camera's sensor to light. Low ISO values like 25, 50. 100, 125 should be used when there is plenty of light, a good sunny day outdoors and the subject of the frame is motionless. A 200 ISO could be chosen for cloudy overcast days and outdoors, while the 400, 800 and above for indoors, heavy overcast days, evenings, nights, indoors, and sport scenes. Of course the light your sensor will need to gather will be influenced by the Aperture you choose. Open at f/1.8 for example a lens will gather light faster than if it was set at f/16, where the blades close down. I listen many people returning from tutors who tell them to use their cameras in Aperture Priority Mode (A). There is some true in the validity of this, as the setting of the Aperture value will allow the Depth of field in the frame. But, Try first to grasp the issue of Light and set the correct ISO corresponding to the lighting conditions and then set the Aperture. People tend to forget that at the times of film photography the first thing you pondered was what film sensitivity (ISO) to choose to load your camera with. And then you set the aperture.
Sport or fast moving action pictures require high sensitivity to light and thus high ISO. If you are new to photography I would suggest you do more still shots in the beginning so you grasp the issues of ISO, Aperture and Shutter Speed settings and their interrelation.
