Olé! Olé! y Olé! that is what we say when the "Torero" is making a good work. You have done a very good shot, just the moment when the torero is goin to nail the "banderillas" on the bull. This moment is called "tercio de banderillas" o " suerte de banderillas". Banderillas, as you can see, are those things that the torero carry on his hands.
You say that it is cruel, but perhaps you don´t know that the spanish bull is done to fight, because of his special fierceness. Bulls has two horns like two swords to fight and there are some times that the torero does not win the fight.
But don´t worry, there are lots of people in Spain that doesn´t like "toros". I like it very much, and i can say that your photo is really good. Congratulations and regards from Spain.
Pd: I have taken the freedom to add this photo to my theme of bullfighting spectacles.

In a word barbaric. It is time for Spain to move out of the dark ages. There is no justification for blatant cruelty.
