About the image:
We spotted this bull when we were driving on the east coast of the South Island of New Zealand. I pulled over to the side of the road and approached the fence that separated him from the road. He was very calm, and I used my telephoto lens to take a few shots of him while making sure I am not disturbing him. This one was the best, as he looked straight at me. I decided to make it a B & W image to draw attention to him and emphasize texture.
