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 - there is a new kiriban - catch my 866 666 pageviews and send me a printscreen as a proof via note to win a feature
(no feature for animal abuse, porn or art-thieves).
At second - I lost 12 kilos it means I need to lose 20 another killos to have NORMAL weight. Well, I am on a good way, I just need to try harder. 12 kilos are nice, but not nice enough if you consider the time. I am still satisfied, because I think I mostly lost fat and not muscles, which is great I will do my best to lose another 10 kilos faster. Let's give it try ok? I will do my best to lose another 10 kilos until the end of October (I do not want to go to quickly. To lose weight fast is definitely not a good way, because then you get a lot of fat back and you lose muscles...).
I went to buy some present for my sister's nameday (which is today and we had a cake, OH! and because my job's colleague is also Martina, we had another cake, OH! I think I will eat gras

PEOPLE, I have a small request! Czech ZOOs currently have a contest - they are fighing to get people vote for the most beautiful baby animal born in 2012.
Can you, please, look at this facebook page ===> http://www.facebook.com/uniezoo/app_129511740507349 and vote for BABY DONKEY EMA from ZOO Děčín?
ZOO Děčín is a tiny but very nice ZOO, I would love to suport them somehow - and they are close to victory!
Only Dvur Kralove is closer, but I do not like this ZOO for their terrible marketing and bad attitude to visitors...
I bet people from ZOO Děčín would be happy if they won!

:-( 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
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!

Uah, what a night
I was so excited with free international shipping offered by DA, that I shopped like crazy, ordering so many things I hope they will REALLY arrive and that I will REALLY have shipping for free.
Also, I see that some of you used that offer too, because some people bought stuff I sell - THANK YOU for every shopped item, people, thank you, really! I have already sold several mugs and also 3 calendars, which makes me really happy! I wish I could see, how the printed calendar looks, so I thought about buying it too, but honestly, I would not use it that much haha, from some 5500 points, I have 500 left now
Do not forget that I now sell new FOX MUG -

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

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!

Love of wolves (mating season) - PHOTOSHelloLove of wolves (mating season) - PHOTOS2 years ago in Personal More Like This
First of all, kiriban (766 666) is VERY close!
At second, Brno's females, Alex and Clair, are in heat now. I went to the ZOO to take some photos - because of mating season, wolves were very excited and active. I had a great chance to watch their fantastic and natural behavior, which included gentle touches, aggresivity (not between alphas and beta, but younger wolves were somehow excited) and mating itself. It was just incredible to observe so intimate moments of the lives of wolves. Thanks to winter, I was totally alone with them - only me and wolves. I would like to share some shots I took - sorry for lower quality, the weather was cloudy and as you can imagine, wolves were moving a lot. Although I took some photos of mating itself, I do not want to post such shots. Not to offend some of my watchers (mating and also eating are absolutely natural for animals ) but to somehow respect privacy of the wolves
Thank you for every it would help me to share this
Some bad stuff, dA love and white wolves - PHOTOSHello!Some bad stuff, dA love and white wolves - PHOTOS3 years ago in Personal More Like This
I must say, that I see it more and more often here on dA. When I browse photos of animals, I almost everytime find photos of road kills or dead animals in general, often deatiled shots of their entrails and decayed bodies. I understand that some people can not take photos of alive animals in ZOOs or in the wild, but seriously... do they need to post dead animals? Moreover, usually bad quality snapshots of bowels? I think some people just forget that this is deviantART. AAAAAARRRRRRRTTTT. I do not think that remains of dead racoons are art. I find it disgusting. At least it should be posted to category "Horror", not wild animals :/ just saying my opinion.
Edit: people, I speak about REALLY disgusting photos of animals, which are torn into bloody pieces by cars. I do NOT speak about photos of dead animals in general, which can be used for anatomy references
On the other hand, I hope you noticed that time to time, I give some critiques, usually to people, whose photos ar

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

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

At second, no, I did not get any DD (only one - bur many years ago buhhehehhehe )

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

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
