Sunday Stills - In Motion!

The assignment for Sunday Stills this week was IN MOTION. Well, I was at the perfect place yesterday to get some action shots-a bull futurity! Stock contractors brought their one and two year old bulls out to see how they stack up against others. Here are some of the bulls that were competing. None of the ones pictured belong to us.





**Update on Stubby...he did okay. He placed about the middle of the pack. Didn't win any money but after all the hookin' and bashin', we were happy with his performance. He's comin' home today. I was given strict instructions NOT to get in the pen with him because of his recent attitude. We'll see how he acts when he gets home.**

Okay, although I have looked through others and saw some wonderful pics, yours are TOTALLY in motion. Fantastic, and I'm a city-slicker who has always longed to be a cowboy.

A bull futurity? How neat is that? So, does that little box record their movement somehow?

I think they're all terrific. Nicely done!

Awesomeness! I wish we had futurities up here. I have always wanted to go to one.

Too bad about Stubby. Maybe next time!

Great captures!

That third shot reminds me that I am facinated by the way animals move, and that they don't break something when doing their gymnastic moves!

Regular Guy said...

As always very awesome shots! Those guys definitely seem to have some fierce personalities!

Tatersmama said...

WOW...You got some seriously awesome shots, but I wonder if those poor babies need a chiropractor afterwards??
Those are some serious twisty moves!!!
Do they gimp around the next day and say "oh, my achin' back...I think I've twisted my back!" ?

I love the third one, that bull looks like he might end up on his side!?
I'm glad that Stubby did pretty well and be careful and keep an eye on that bull!

Mary Olson said...

Amazing photos! Like a few others, I really like the 3rd one.

Andrea said...

I love that first little bull, with his tail straight up in the air!! Aweseome!! That last picture is great too!! You got some great shots!! Middle of the pack isn't too bad!! It's way better than being at the end! :) Great bucking Stubby!!

Great action shots!! You're good!!

Heather said...

I love bull action! It's hard sometimes to get a good shot of a bull especially with a cowboy on top. These are all great!
