[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
This bull had about 15 cows in his harem. He got really stirred up when one of his females decided to run over beside me and eat some grass. I think this is my favorite photo that I shot that day.

A great weekend to all!

Bonjour Denis,
Très belle attitude du sujet saisie à l'instant décisif ; l'angle de prise de vue aurait, peut-être, pu être modifié afin de supprimer dans l'arrière-plan les deux arbres morts inclinés.
A bientôt sur TN pour de nouvelles aventures.

Hi Denis.
I like the shot so much. You have frozen a wonderful moment. Eye-contact, composition of the shot and DOF are great. Only it seems to me level of contrast should to increase a little bit. My best wishes and compliments.

Hello denis,
this is a nice and bold capture of this exciting bull. The view is so impressive in its natural and pretty surroundings. you have presented it so well.
A lively presentation that hard to get.


Hello Denis,

What an impressive male!!! He looks very angry at you like he is defending its harem.

Excellent exposition but it seems to me that the picture incline a little bit to the right...

Have a good weekend.
