This image is from a series of shots taken in Madrid during a July '07 Novillada, a bullfight involving young and less experienced bullfighters, This is part of their training to become real Toreros. The bullfighter, captured here in a moment of unexpected levitation under the incredulous bull's stare, actually recovered from his pirouette, got back on his feet and, proud as he was, continued the fight until the end, winning the public's acclamation. Don't take anything for granted...
