Running of the Clown...and Bull
by Kerry Haines (Kerry) 
Canon EOS 20-D
Roy, Washington
United States of America

Photographer Notes:
The rodeo clown in this image saved a bullrider's life by putting his own in harms way. The bull was goring its rider when this courageous clown diverted its attention. As a result, this monsterous rampaging bull charged after the clown for the entire length of the arena. Fortunately, the clown was unhurt. The injured bullrider required sutures, but overall was okay.
