Losing faith in humankind XD + animals PHOTOSHi!
Holy mother, as I keep saying, thieves come in waves
Other art-thief just deactivated her account thanks to your report, thanks!
The last drop was a guy who posted a comment under my last red fox photo, who was not able to understand that photos of foxes do not belong to Domecticated category, although those are captive animals and he was not even able to understand the description of the photo, which clearly states I did not take the photo in the wild. And he mistook domestication (which is a long lasting process of turning of wild animal species into an animal fully living or depending or serving to humans) to keeping wild animals. OMG, people those days!
I have already met several people who did not understand that, so to make it clear:
According to rules of DA:
Domestic animals category: Photographs of animals that have been domesticated (tamed to live with humans), as either pets or livestock, and which depend on humans for survival.
Wild animals category: Photographs of
Snow is here - wolves on snow - PHOTOSHi!Snow is here - wolves on snow - PHOTOS1 year ago in Personal More Like This
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

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

I am so tired - I had to wake up at 5 AM, because I had my driving lesson and also exams.
I passed the computer test weeks ago, I got 100% of right answers.
I also passed the exam of technical knowledge weeks ago.
But I failed to pass practical driving exam for two times! they say that only 20% people pass all three exams for the first attempt. But my second attempt was absolutely screwed up - I was so depressed about it, feeling so ashamed.
But today I passed also this part, so I will have a driving licence soon
I am sleepy now - today's journal is fitting, as it feature cute sleeping poses of relaxing animals

I am sure mine would NOT be included, but I still feel honoured that we managed to remind people of this amazing alpha male. Thank you, people!

Yesterday I went to ZOO Olomouc with my great friend =amrodel - she has never been to this ZOO and because it is one of my the most favorite animal facilities, I really wanted to show her! And because =amrodel is a lion lover and because baby lions were born in Olomouc, we could not have a better opportunity to meet! It is always a pleasure to see :devamrodel and we really had fun. It was fantastic to watch whole lion family - father imon was so desperate, because his babies wanted to play with his tail! He really seemed very unhappy about it. But we had fun.
Thank you for great meeting and for a great present (=amrodel gave me a printed version of her famous and beautiful photo of my beloved wolf Lobo), friend
In the ZOO, I saw also something which took my breath away - I will show you later!
But after I got back, I got some leight gastric problems. I had them also today, but it was very far from anything serious. But during this eve

it is my birthday today!
I am so old (), so I hope to at least get a LOOOT of presents I am such a materialist
I am just kidding
But yeah, because it is my birthday, I post photos of my beloved animals - I love much more species, of course, but if I have ever had a ZOO, I would want to have those animals in the collection
Have a nice day
And b-day photo I posted
P.S.: you know what? DA has not removed that stolen photo yet I filled brand new official report several days ago, but no reply so far XD

At first, I remind of Kiriban - it is 933 333 now and it is not far I am waiting for a printscreen which would be sent via note
At second, female polar bear Cora and her babies are fine! You can see the video which was taken soon after birth here: http://video.idnes.cz/?idvideo=V121126_142654_tv-zpravy_sha
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?
Correct answers did you get all those canines right?
When the stupid cage ruins the photo - PHOTOS XDHi!When the stupid cage ruins the photo - PHOTOS XD1 year ago in Personal More Like This
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
Shame about fennecs + my favourite wolves - PHOTOSHi!Shame about fennecs + my favourite wolves - PHOTOS1 year 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
Back from Berlin - a bit of talking and ZOO PHOTOSHi peopleBack from Berlin - a bit of talking and ZOO PHOTOS1 year 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

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
:-( and ZOO animals - PHOTOSHello,:-( and ZOO animals - PHOTOS1 year 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

ZOO Dvur Kralove - PHOTOS + lens troubles?Hi pals!ZOO Dvur Kralove - PHOTOS + lens troubles?1 year 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!

So my parents finally got back from Georgia. I have to say that I feel a great relief! Of course I knew local people are civilized that it is a nice country with fantastic nature, but it was still the Caucasus region and I definitely did not trust its roads and planes... My parents loved the trip and today and tomorrow we are looking at the photos they and their friends have taken. Nice to have them home
I also announce the newest kiriban as you did not catch the previos one: 904 444!

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
Tiger drama in local ZOO + animals - PHOTOSHi people!Tiger drama in local ZOO + animals - PHOTOS1 year 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!

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

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.

But since today, I finally feel a bit better. I will have a little walk tomorrow and if I survive () I hope to travel to take some new photos as it is snow here now again!
I also prepared some materials as I want to self-study English. I need to improve. I know I have work to do :/ I am especially bad with prepositions and prepositional phrases. And also with the use of "to" - I am never sure if I should say "I am considered a bad person" or "I am considered TO be a bad person".
One nice thing: I do not have nightmares about my thesis anymore, so I kicked myself to write a "thank you letter" to my supervisor. I like her, she is a very skilled young teacher and I was concerned about her opinion on me. I was afraid that she would consider myself to be totally stupid because of my inability to write a good thesis. Her reply was short but ni
