X-mas - being commercial :) fox, wolves - PHOTOSHi people!
kiriban winner will be featured next time
Today I want to be commercial
A bit more than 1 month until Christmas - time to announce my stuff
I really think some of those might be nice gifts - especially when it comes to print/gifts, which are not only originals with animal photos, but also USEFUL! Last year, I used donated points to order some of my stuff from DA, because I wanted to know the stuff I sell. I got 6 mugs and I was amazed with quality - I use them on daily basis and they are so cool! And I got also a calendar - and again, I can say the calendar's quality made me really happy, photos are sharp, colours are vivid and the format of calender allows you to note your own stuff into it
So I am definitely not ashamed to offer my stuff - I believe it can really make people happy
In this journal, I at first feature some of the stuff I sell - then I post a photo to show you, how those mugs really look like. The last photo set will show you, how d
Tiger drama in local ZOO + animals - PHOTOSHi people!Tiger drama in local ZOO + animals - PHOTOS2 years ago in Personal More Like This
Once more sorry for low activity. Thesis, thesis. Thesis. Thesis. DIES.
Today a white tiger in Czech ZOO Liberec attacked a young guy (he was on practise, not a visitor), who was saved thanks to bravery of two female keepers who hit the cat with some bucket to get his attention. The tiger escaped from the exhibit, so three people, all of them injured by the tiger, stayed inside the cage. The tiger was shot with some drugs and went limp. Fortunately, this whole accident seems to have a happy end, injuries are not severe and the tiger has not been harmed. Just wow, huh... Drama!
Finally a feature for Kiriban winner and then some animal photos. Please keep your fingers crossed for me, so I can finish my thesis soon. Thank you!

Nobody caughed the kiriban?
What a pity
Will, will, where are you?
I do not mean any guy (although Will Riker is kind of cute ), but my own will - I can not get into losing weight again, although I now have the perfect chance to continue! I hate my weak will so much, how comes that I can not kick myself to continue, especially when I see it IS possible? :/ nah, I am so angry at myself. Go, stupid Woxys! There are still 20 kilos of fat which wait to be removed.
Mhhhhhm, I really need to start, as even the current state makes me feel much happier than the state a year ago.
Sorry for talking about this issue a lot, it is not easy, although I have already managed to lose some 20 kilos. And now other 20 should go away! It is just hard, because yes, it is nice I lost so much, but I am still so terribly overweight I have so many motivation clothes, but I obviously need a big kick to continue. GOOO, blonde, go but thank you for your support, you are awesome.
ZOO Dvur Kralove - PHOTOS + lens troubles?Hi pals!ZOO Dvur Kralove - PHOTOS + lens troubles?2 years ago in Personal More Like This
Kiriban was caught and the winner will be featured soon
I also passed all your comments and compliments (on the last journal's photos) to my parents, they were very pleased and thanked you so thanks!
This weekend I spent in mountain and I visited one of my favourite ZOOs, Dvur Kralove nad Labem. I was a bit disappointed that they moved cheetahs (I did not see them at all), because this ZOO was very good for taking photos of them. They also moved fennec foxes from very photographer friendly enclosure which allowed the foxes to enjoy some sun light into a nocturnal indoor pavilion which is very dark and you can watch the foxes only from above, so I am afraid I lost this place for fennec photos I also did not manage to take good photos of baby tigers and baby leopard although I tried a lot. It seems that my lens refuses to focuse, which scares me I admit I could take some 70 000 photos with it, but... do not die, 55-250 IS! I can not be without photography!

At first, thank you for very interesting discusion under my last journal - although I did not reply to every comment, be sure I read every single one! do not be afraid, I definitely do not judge USA and its citizens through some reality shows here in the Czech republic we also have really stupid shows and so, I think it is a world epidemy I always keep in mind that USA is huge country with a large scale of people of all the qualities some of you said they are ashamed to be Americans - I do not think there is a reason for it, as your country has f.e. many good universities or scientists!
I had a bad day today. I got totally stressed (I can not say why - maybe because of my stupid diploma thesis?) and when I get stressed, I eat. Holy mother, I ate such a crap today, that I feel really guilty and if I did not feel a strong resistance against it, I would like to kick myself to threw it all away I ate some caramel cream I prepared for a cake I made, then I ate TH
Thank you + kiriban + zoo news + zoo PHOTOSHi!Thank you + kiriban + zoo news + zoo PHOTOS2 years ago in Personal More Like This
At first, thank you for supporting Allerlei and her photo - not only her photo will be included in a calendar, but she won, her photo had by far the most "likes"! thank you for helphig her - the calendar with her shot will be sold by ZOO Bratislava and the money will go to the construction of brand new wolf exhibit the ZOO is probably a bit poor, so it needs to get all the money first before it starts building. So such calendar might be a nice help! I can not wait - wolves now have very small, old cage, because the ZOO got them by mistake and had no proper place for housing them
At second, I announce a new kiriban - it is 922 222 and it is quite close. No chance to get 1 milion pageviews this year, but you have an apportunity to win a feature just catch it and send me a printscreen via note no feature for porn or animal cruelty

Strange dA people + ZOO in autumn - PHOTOSHi!Strange dA people + ZOO in autumn - PHOTOS2 years ago in Personal More Like This
I got all scared and hysterical that I waisted all sunny autumn days so I have no chance to take any wolf photos with colourful background this year. So when the sun made it to shine through the clowds today, I ran to the ZOO to take some shots. Well, the leaves are still on the branches and nicely golden, so I have some autumn shots in stock again the foxes and wolves are fluffy again, but both of those species were sleepy - I had to wait a lot before wolves decided to move a bit. You might say it is a deal of photographers, but it is something unusual, local wolves tend to have only short moments without activity. Both alpha and beta female seem to be very tired and thin, but at least they seem to have some grown fur I hope they will manage to survive the winter, but it is really a sad sight. Atila, on the other side, is fluffy white pillow as usual, and again his own pups made him feel very uneasy. He is so cute.
The title: yup, there are some great persons on this site

The first snow came - it was very thin layer, much less than 1cm, so it did not survive the night, but it still pleased me
It inspired me to post some photos of wolves on snow - those shots are quite old
Wohoo, this number of pageviews? thanks people, it looks nice - I wonder if I can make it to 1 000 000 until the end of 2012! it would be awesome

Shame about fennecs + my favourite wolves - PHOTOSHi!Shame about fennecs + my favourite wolves - PHOTOS2 years ago in Personal More Like This
I went to my beloved ZOO Olomouc to photograph animals yesterday - I needed a break from the thesis writing.
I spent hour or maybe more with my favourite wolf subspecies - Iberian wolves. They were very active and even aggresive, snapping their jaws and snarrling a lot. One of them tried to catch a crazy rodent. It was fun and I got many photos for you
But the bad news - fennec fox got a new light in their enclosure. It is a red light and it TOTALLY does not allow you to photograph, because the specific light ruins the texture of the animal's fur and there is no chance to get any photo I am sad about it, I loved this place for fennec photography now it has been lost... in ZOO Dvur Kralove, they put those foxes into very dark indoor exhibit, so this place is also lost and in Prague, you never see them... Hm... I am a bit sad about it, I would miss those little guys
I also definitely need a new lens. My current one had troubles to focuse yesterday and I could not take a s
:-( and ZOO animals - PHOTOSHello,:-( and ZOO animals - PHOTOS2 years ago in Personal More Like This
I hate that thesis SO much... I feel like total idiot, I somehow can not write it. Why?!
It is my the last attempt to complete it, if I do not finish it properly, I totally lose my chance to get my second Master degree. Which would be pretty embarassing, because not only I already have all the credits I need, I even passed the graduation exams! After so much work, it would be stupid to end without the title just because of inability to write stupid 80 pages.
Also, I wish USA a lucky hand when it comes to voting! It might be interesting, I will definitely watch US elections interesting material for a student of political science. I do not mind to share my opinion - I would vote for Obama. But I do not feel like advocating my opinion, I have no problem with those whose attitude is different
The first few photobooks have been already shipped!
P.S.: still exercising, still riding a bike (two days, then a pause), still eating 5x a day. I have problems with drinkin

I used my a bit higher (but still pathetically low) self-confidence to meet another dA member - this time it was Shadow-and-Flame-86, lovely young scientist from Scottland, where she studies marine mammals! It was just perfect, she is very nice person, we had fun (at least me ). I am really glad we met and could chat a lot about her work, ZOOs and animals in general
What was the biggest attraction? Giant pandas? Wolves?
No! Those were squirrels
ZOO Vienna is totally full of wild but tame squirrels. And by full I mean that they are everywhere in a forest part of the ZOO! People feed them with nuts, so they come VERY close to you, they even run to humans, following them and begging I was ready for this and I prepared a sack of wallnuts for me and Shadow-and-Flame-86 to have some fun. It was amazing one squirrel bit me when she took a nut from my fingers - I was rude to hold it too tightly, I think XD other squirrel climbed me chest, other one my

No feature for animal cruelty or porn, thanks for understanding.
At second, no, I did not get any DD (only one - bur many years ago buhhehehhehe )
But I have suggested many deviations for DD and I was disappointed when I got no reply and those deviations have not been accepted I think some of those artists created absolutely incredible work and they definitely deserve more attention.
Today, I will show you some of the deviations I have suggested (or plan to suggest) for DD, but which have not been noticed or accepted by admins, which made me really sad and disappointed. DA has some rules for featuring a deviation as a DD, it says that suggested artist should not have a DD yet, it should not be very famous artist and it should include some info about a subject in the descriptions. Those artists followed the rules, but their art has not

After lot of waiting, I finally got photobooks I want to sell! I will post some special info about them, but I am amazed with the quality it is printed on photopaper, colours are vivid and... well, layout and quality look very professional IMHO I have 15 of them, each for 25 USD (which includes international shipping). I will surely say more before I will really start selling them
I hope you noticed I usually (with today's exception) do my best to post photos without visible captivity. But in some ZOOs (and I must say those ZOOs are mostly foreign ones, not Czech) they use system of double fences (the extrem was Tierpark Berlin with FOUR fences!), which sometime totally prevent you from taking a photo of the animal. It can be real pain! also, many ZOOs offer you comfy glass wall, but there is some stupid annoying part of the cage BEHIND the animal those are two main reasons why I do not post many photos. So today I share some of those ruined phot
Art-thief + small cats - PHOTOS!Hi people!Art-thief + small cats - PHOTOS!2 years ago in Personal More Like This
Yup, after long time, there is another stealing guy in this site.
He posts many famous google photos, clearly claiming them as his own. His last submission was a red fox, which is in fact a very famous National Geographic photo, which is posted by thieves very often. This guy says it was him who took the photo and he was only 30 cm far from this animal. What a liar.
This guy does NOT steal my photos, he steals photos of other authors.
So please, report him. I think his gallery is totally crowded with stolen shots, so if you know the originals, report him too, please.
And please, just report, no rude words for him. Thanks!
I hate those liars so much, especially when they think that blocking you would save their butt.

at first, thank you for help, many people reported that stealing Facebook page (I think some of them reported also because those people were harrassing me) and it was the most likely taken down. Thank you so much people, there was at least a tiny victory.
Here you can see INCREDIBLE argumentation they used to defend the stealing: http://woxys.deviantart.com/journal/Fail-thieves-Wolves-on-snow-fresh-PHOTOS-348714022 - just check the comments.
I can not believe it. That person only REPOSTED my and other photographers photos, usually adding no description which would inform about animals. They just posted photos.
But when I post a photo, I in 99% include description which should educate people about portraid animal - but still this person blames me from not being interested in animals????

You can nicely see both twins and the most adorable movement of Cora, who uses her paw to get the cubs close to her chest to keep them safe and warm Cora is now supposed to let them rest on her chest, guarding and feeding them for few months! I hope whole the family will be ok!
You can also watch the mom and babies here - http://www.zoobrno.cz/cs/videogalerie/ do not forget to turn the sound on, you would be shocked how NOISY those tiny, less than a week old babies are! Please, keep in mind that only 10-20% babies survive in ZOOs, so you can see some sad things while you watch the stream. Ok?

Back from Berlin - a bit of talking and ZOO PHOTOSHi peopleBack from Berlin - a bit of talking and ZOO PHOTOS2 years ago in Personal More Like This
Muhaha, I am back from Berlin - it was AWESOME trip!
Thank you all for journey advices - we finally decided to not buy a sticker, to park our cars as close to the center as possible and to get to the hotel by underground. We in fact had no clue where to park or where to even leave a highway, but it somehow happened that we accidentaly left the car on the best place, which was really right next to the beginning of "eko" zone and just next to the tube station of the line which got us directly to the hotel. Yay!
The first thing I saw after getting out of the underground area was... CHECKPOINT CHARLIE!
One of the things I REALLY wanted to see in my life
And even our hotel was on a street, which used to be divided by Berlin wall! The remains were still lying just few metres from the hotel! Just AWESOME, AWEEEEEESSSOOMMMEEEE!
It really meant a lot for me.
I wonder if YOU know about Berlin wall and so...?
I think I will write a report about it next time

I quit the job today.
I did not want to do it before finding another one, but I finally could not bear all that confused stuff and stress and low competence of the company. I was even supposed to help to spread something I considered to be evil for the world, so it was even more stressful.
Now I need to find a job as soon as possible. So I am poor again now XD
EDIT: people, you seem to be a bit confused - my job has never had anything to do with animals or photography! ZOO photography is just a hobby for me, I need to earn money to go to ZOOs. So my photography is not threatened by leaving the job, but it is threatened by having less money because of leaving the job if you know what I mean I just need to find another job
At least I finally have time to answer your notes and comments

I wonder what caused this: Sandy? Or do Americans have some Halloween holiday so they are not online? Or... is there some secret and slow Zombie attack?
Of course dA decided to use this time to announce free shipping usually they do it before Christmas and I usually get pretty nice money from it. This time I got just few dolars, so I hope dA will repeat the action - just before X-mas as they did the last year. Because this site really seems to be empty now! as a response to a free shipping, I released Free calendar for 2013 - I think I have never had so few faves, views and downloads on it. What a pity, what a bad time
I know about Sandy, it was covered by Czech media a lot
