Remember my bull-riding shot from 3 or 4 days ago? This exposure was taken about a second later as the bull turned to exact revenge on the guy that had previously been riding it.
The interesting this this shot is, to me, less to do with the bull and downed rider than the reactions of the clown and the two guys in the background. While the riders get all the glory, the clowns are the guys I am most impressed by. Their job is to keep the bull distracted long enough for the riders to get up and out of the way and while some of their antics may look like pure entertainment (leaping over the bull, rolling barrels around, etc.) I’m sure the risk involved in coaxing a 2700+ pound bull to chase you are rather significant!
