I just have technical CC if that is okay.

Photoshop? There is now a Subject subject option and this guy would be a perfect subject as he is well isolated from the green background. With that see if you can't isolate him onto his own layer.

Now do a content aware fill the background in the area he is now cut out of... and blur the background as a whole. This should help blend the bokeh with the fokeh (fake bokeh).

Also, with him isolated, it will make it much easier to "dodge"; right now you have a little piece of dodged grass between his horns.

Then clone out the little piece of grass at the base of his neck.

Is this a crop or the full frame? I only ask as I'd also balance the sides of the frame with the backsides of his horns and the tip of his nose.

Just my two cents of course... nothing more. It's a really nice clean shot.

1/4000 at iso 100? Wow, it was super bright out?

As far as the edits on the animal, looks pretty good. Maybe a tad strong. But, man, the fake bokeh, especially the bottom left, is pretty bad. Not sure why you went with a swirl effect. That pattern doesn't even go with the rest of the grass, nor is it realistic. And, there's leftover pieces from the original grass and haloing around the animal.

Thank you i will do a new edit tonigth. I will go lite les on the animal and skip the backround efekt. I new to edit in photoshop so thank you for the feedback.

Tonally I think the edit is good, perhaps a hair oversaturated on the fur. The circular blur below the face just looks odd. Besides that its a nice photo.
