Thank you for nice words under my last journal, you pleased me
When I have some time now, I will do my best to answer your notes and comments... I have 2700 comments in my message box
I am back after some rest - I was sleeping quite a lot, so I was silent for few days. I usually fell asleep before I could post a journal
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
But you know what?
I do not care. Even s
ZOO Dvur Kralove - PHOTOS + lens troubles?Hi pals!ZOO Dvur Kralove - PHOTOS + lens troubles?3 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!

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

Yay, I have only three last driving lessons before the final exam!
And I need to start writing my final thesis again! I bet you hate this line at least as much as me
I also made a totally delicious dessert with two different cremes, it took me at least 5 hours to finish it - but do not worry, one can eat only very small portion every day and I will give some pieces to my grandfather, friend and sister's boyfriend
And I need to ride a bike again - that Alpen trip interrupted my sporting again and I need to get used to it again
I at least had some nice hour of fast walking on Monday
Here come some cats
It is Sri Lankan leopard, Snow leopard, Amur leopard, Persian leopard, then again Sri Lankan leopard, Snow leopard, Amur leopard and Persian leopard. I hope you like it

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
Some bad stuff, dA love and white wolves - PHOTOSHello!Some bad stuff, dA love and white wolves - PHOTOS4 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

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

Back from Berlin - a bit of talking and ZOO PHOTOSHi peopleBack from Berlin - a bit of talking and ZOO PHOTOS3 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

Spam... I noticed some official dA blog where they spoke about higher priority of fighting against spam. Honestly, there is probably something very wrong, because before dA posted it, I usually noticed only few - several spams a year. But since that post, I find spam on my dA account almost daily, sometimes even more spams a day! does it happen to you to? Those are messages like "As an anime fan, you can enjoy the best manga - LINK". It is annoying, I always report it
And now... FOXES!

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

I am really stressed now - I study so much but I do not remember anything
Those texts are so complicated that when I finish reading, I am not able to say what it was about
And those are some 6 000 pages!
I feel really uneasy about it. I have no time to learn that!
Also, this winter is so bad when it comes to snow
I am really happy I took many photos of wolves on snow last year, because it seems that winter 2011/12 will not offer any nice photo oportunity. There is NO snow here only on mountains, but not here. I love snow, so it makes me sad
Well, time for new Kiriban!

Kiriban winners will be featured next time, ok?
Today I post photos of my favourite cats, snow leopards. All were taken in ZOO Jihlava with Canon Powershot S5 IS. I still have some sharp photos of nice moments, which I somehow "saved for better occassion". Ironically, I now do not feel like posting them, because although they are sharp and bright, they do not have SLR quality of shots taken with my SLR camera. There are also some very cute poses of baby snow leopard, so I might still post them later. I will consider it.
Nah, bad mood here.
And thank you for every , of course!

Finally I was forced to use USB keyboard. It does not make me happy at all - I think I have not mention it before, but I am very short, so all tables in our home are too high for me. I can not type there, as my hands soon starts to tingle because of blood loss I need to type with a notebook in my lap. So finishing my final thesis will be even worse pain than usually.
Oh my, thesis.
I have just 14 days to write it. I must start, but as my BAD habit is, I am so stressed about it that I rather feel dumb and hating myself than to REALLY start.
I need to start NOW!
And I make a promise to motivate myself, ok, people?
If a practical part of my thesis is not finished untit this Sunday (5/12/2012), I will publish photo of myself. You might considered it weird, but I am hysterical about my annonymity and I really do not want anybody to know me - I think there is not a single photo of me online. So posting a photo of me would be really a punishment, believe me. And I am so ungly that ha
Those people again! + doctor + ZOO PHOTOS!Hi!Those people again! + doctor + ZOO PHOTOS!3 years ago in Personal More Like This
So many things to say today, I need to make it shorter
At first, THANK YOU for support, people, really!
I went to the doctor on Wednesday, although I already felt better. The doctor said I probably really have salmonellosis and I am already treated for it. Smoked salmon is probably to blame - and I ate it, because I wanted to be healthy
It is not a big deal, in fact I already feel completely healthy I have no pain or stomach problems at all. I am just on a diet (I need to drink a lot of coke, mineral water, three litres of drinks in general. And I need to eat over salted rice) and take some pills. But I am ok, just a bit tired. I was warned to not underestimate this illness, so I am a good girl and I stay at home. I just encouraged myself to try to eat some soup and chicken meat - nothing bad happen, so I think I am just fine
I was probably lucky - it was likely some weak type of salmonellosis and moreover it was even weaker illness in my case. So great!

Omg, was my previous journal really posted more than two weeks ago, although I promised to post more of them?
I am so sorry, I am busy and tired. I am not used to wake up at 5:50 AM, so although I get home quite early, I am usually very tired and fall asleep about 10 PM.
I was also very disappointed about that canceled trip to black wolves, so I felt kind of empty and dull and I did not feel like being active.
So... interested in news?
I am still losing weight: next tuesday, my 12 weeks PC program ends. I have to say that since I started to go on my internship in a marketing company, I do not even start it, although I used to fill it completely in previous months. When I work, I have to go to a local univerzity canteen to have a lunch, because the marketing company does not have a microwave in an office. So I can not control the ingrediences of the lunch, which is the main dish of a day so I feel it is pointless to try to fill the rest of the categories of the program.
Art-thief + small cats - PHOTOS!Hi people!Art-thief + small cats - PHOTOS!3 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.

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

Some sad news about wolves (?) and PHOTOS of themHi!Some sad news about wolves (?) and PHOTOS of them4 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
