Baby polar foxes were born! + old PHOTOS of kitsHi!Baby polar foxes were born! + old PHOTOS of kits3 years ago in Personal More Like This
I just read the info, that baby polar foxes were born in local ZOO!
They are probably still too young to leave the burrow, but I might visit them soon to try to take some photos
Maybe it will kick me to buy a new year ticket - I have not visited the ZOO since my year ticket expired in March but yeah, I will buy it, I think. I definitely visit this ZOO more often than just six times a year
Some ooold photos of baby foxes (taken in 2009). Kits are so adorable

Bitten by a squirrel + funny ZOO Vienna - PHOTOSHiBitten by a squirrel + funny ZOO Vienna - PHOTOS2 years ago in Personal More Like This
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
DD for some of you :)Hi!DD for some of you :)2 years ago in Personal More Like This
At first, there is a new kiriban: catch my 955 555 pageviews and send me a printscreen via note as a proof to win a feature
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

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!

Thank you very much for donating points - as I said, I will give a wallpaper of his/her choice to everybody who donates more than 100 points. And as several people donated less than 100, but still nice amount of points, I decided to feature all the donators. The feature will be given in next journal - thank you, donators!
EDIT: omg, THANK YOU, people, I just ordered the calendar as you were nice enough to donate remaining 230 points in just few minutes. All donators will be featured in next journal!
Also, dA is somehow out of order again *facepalm*
I checked front page - now you can not see photos of young authors there. But you can see works in the same category (!!!) next to each other (moreover from the same author), while work from another categories, although having much more faves, are not on FP at all
I hope dA will fix it soon, whole error lasts for almost two weeks and it is already a bit boring

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.

Well, there was no big celebration of my master degree, we just had some evening with great deserts - but I want to celebrate it with the rest of the family too, because we are very close so after graduation ceremony, I think we would celebrate it in some restaurant or at least at home, but with a cake.
Oh food! Guess what, I got a looooot of weight back because of thesis stress
Unfortunately, I am that kind of person who really needs to eat when it is stressed. So I ate like an animal!!!!!!
At first it seemed to be ok for several weeks... but then I quickly got many kilos back

Few words about art-thieves.Hi!Few words about art-thieves.2 years ago in Personal More Like This
My dear watchers, I really appreciate your support when it comes to fight against art-thieves.
But I bet there are also many people whose thoughs can be interpretted like "why is she so hysterical about it?". Some people say, that the fact, that some photo is worth stealing, is a kind of compliment.
Ok, so let me present my point.
At first: why am I so unhappy about reposting of photos?
Because, pals, if somebody just reposts a photo without any change, it just gives totally open space to other people who would find the photos on his/her blog, taking it and posting it themselves. And because the first person did not credit the original author, they also do not credit the creator. The more people do that, the more times the photo is reposted. Always without credit. Sooner or later, it becomes a kind of "public" property and original author has almost no chance to effect this situation.
Do you know this photo? Honestly, EVERYBODY knows it. But do you know original author? Do you

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
Seriously, people? And wolves - PHOTOS!Hi!Seriously, people? And wolves - PHOTOS!3 years ago in Personal More Like This
I have been always curious about the number of people, who look at my journals. And new style of "favable" journals could finally show it to me. I was interested - when I post a journal, I usually have some + 400 views on my profile page. So I expected to have some 400 views on my last journals, which would confirm, that 400 persons read it. But it got some 6 000 views! it is MUCH more than my photos usually have! I can not believe this number is correct... I was told that the journal appeared in some dA news section, but I am not sure if that is a reason, because I had no special pageviews, just regular + 400, which is typical for a day, when I post a journal. I think that new visitors, who would be attracted by a journal, would probably (at least small part of them) visit my page, so I would have bigger number of pageviews
So this is a mystery, really...
As I said, I like my photo journals and I consider them my "trade mark", something which differs me from anot
Some sad news about wolves (?) and PHOTOS of themHi!Some sad news about wolves (?) and PHOTOS of them3 years ago in Personal More Like This
I must say I am a bit nervous I visited ZOO Brno few times in last few weeks and I see that one of three oldest pack members is not fluffy yet ZOO Brno's oldest wolves are Atila (male) and Alex and Clair (females, sisters). Arctic wolves live only some 7 years in the wild, but can have much longer life in ZOOs. But while Atila still looks nice and fluffy, both females look somehow... "used" this year maybe it is because they gave birth to so many pups and they also used to have some fight (at least one serious two years ago). When you look at their faces, they start to remind of those photos of very very old wolves you can see here on dA and one of the females (I do not which one of them is Alex or Clair) starts to lose fur, her back and hips are moulted
Last time I was watching wolves, ZOO guide came, saying "Do you see that moulted wolf there? It is one of our breeding females. Poor one "u to má asi za sebou"." Saying "u to mít za se

So, let me announce a new kiriban: it is 1 011 111 - we are quite close to it, so do not hesitate!
Send me a printscreen of it as a proof via note and you will be featured (no feature for animal cruelty or porn, thanks).
What is new?
Last Sunday I had a great trip with our philosophy school, my cousin and his wife (I love them both deeply) are members too, so it was fun. We also learned some self-defence tricks, but I totally failed when we were about to use them in real life, practising the application XD but when we finished, my cousin decided to leave the group - we went to the shooting range. My cousin owns a small-bore rifle and let me use it, we were shooting at tiny targets made of plaster. And to my shock, I was pretty good at it! I really enjoyed it and I hope my cousin will allow me to join him in future. Because it was awesome!
I suppose there might be final decision for travelling dolphin show in Prague next week - you will be informed!
But I have to say I am so

Ok, ok, ok, I am almost scared - what happaned? It seems that this site is totally empty for last week!
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
Poor people, I hope everything will be fixed as soon as possible. I did not know it affected so many people

Thanks for your support, I feel better now
The bad / sad issue with the stubborn person I love is not fixed, but at least it seems to improve. I am afraid it can never be absolutely ok, which makes me feel sad for that person. You know, you offer a hand, which is refused, while this person wants you to offer a hand, just in a different way, but he refuses to say which way. Mhm. As I say, it brings me down a bit, because this person is sad and I have always done my best to help. The bad thing is, there is no 100% solution. At least it seems to get better and I am grateful for it, although it is kind of difficult to forget some things which have been said and which somehow hurt
As I said, the ZOO visit on Friday made me very happy to be honest, I came to Brno so tired and hungry, that I joined my family in a restaurant (TVD, you remember Richard, right? ) and ate incredibly big portion of pretty unhealthy food for dinner but I do not regret, it was delic
