OMG, time for new kiriban again! Catch my 811 111 pageviews and send me a printscreen as a proof if you want to win a feature (no feature for porn or animal abuse, ok?)!
I can not believe that dA has not removed those stolen photos yet
I sent dA that "I swear to God, to Muhammad, to Buddha, to holy Cow, to the man on the moon, that I REALLY, but REALLY took those photos and I BEG YOU on my knees to remove the stolen ones" note, but nothing happened
I can not even post names of the thieves, because it would be me, who would have problems
I am just grateful that my nice friend TVD-Photography posted a journal (http://tvd-photography.deviantart.com/journal/Life-special-features-and-an-art-thief-294356735) about this problem, asking her watchers to report the thieves
Thanks, TVD-Photography, there is a tiny feature for you

Ohooo, I celebrated my graduation ceremony with like billions of calories!
It was the first time I had sushi (but I am a bit suspicious if the sushi was a proper version, because apart of tuna or salmon, there were also pieces which included pieces of... a duck ), then we had some cake, Latte and finally that pizza. Yummmmm.
I am awfully back to healthy regime now, nah, I would so have something unhealthy
The graduation ceremony was... a bit boring. I loved the previous ones better (lol, this one was my the third), because they were somehow nicely confused, the guests applauded although they were not supposed to do so... Funny but this time it was very official, the speech of our new dean was also somehow official (I sooo loved the previous dean! Fortunately he was present on Friday too, having a speech, but shorter). And guests seemed to be bored, like somebody forced them to sit there :/
But it was not bad, simply a nice way how to say "goodbye" to my alma mater.

1) thank you, my Polish watchers for useful contacts!
2) today it is an important day for me, because today I had probably the lowest weight after some 12 years! unfortunately, this weekend will probably ruin it a bit (big family celebration with a loooooot of fatty unhealthy meals ), but still! I am on a great way and I am quite satisfied

Oh my, what happened to dA? at first, it was stucked for few days. But well, it happens several times a year. Then there was another error - newest deviations got to front page.

Thank you for buying mugs, people - also thanks to them (and my name day gift), I could go to ZOO Nuremberg
My journey started at 9 PM, I went to Prague and at 11:55 PM, I caught a bus to Nuremberg. I got there at 3:30 AM and I went to the railway station, as it was warm and safe place to stay. I needed to wait some 5 hours on a bench like a homeless! but I had a book and I was so tired, that I also slept a bit. Then I went to the ZOO, being the first visitor again!
Of course, dolphins were the main attraction for me - all other animals are kept also in Czech ZOOs, but dolphins are real rarity for me. And ZOO Nuremberg has absolutely new exhibit for them - big outdoor lagoon with underwater window, which allows you to see swimming dolphins and sea lions, who share this home. Last time I considered myself to be a bit unlucky - only two dolphins were in the whole lagoon and they hardly came close to the window, so I took only few photos of them underwater.
This time, I

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

Love of wolves (mating season) - PHOTOSHelloLove of wolves (mating season) - PHOTOS3 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

You pleased me a lot
I got many nice presents: a fantastic blue jacket, two cool T-shirts, nice hat, two necklases, wonderful shoes (all from Reserved, I like this brand - it is kind of official, but still cool, young and fresh ) and some out-door trousers I got also two boxes of chocolate (I distributed the sweets, having only very few of them), beautiful violet orchid and my aunt's family gave me money for pyjamas (I LOVE pyjamas!) - they could not buy it for me, because when the drove to the shop, they had a minor car accident Allerlei gave me two little Stupid fox triffles (so cute! ) and Kajula wrote a short story with Vávra and Foxie for me
Thank you for wishes and gifts once again!

Lol, some little troll said that she is pretty sure she saw my last red fox photo (http://woxys.deviantart.com/#/d4f7kk9) in National Geographic magazine before - so I would like to thank her for such wonderful compliment! the troll said she will have a look to find original of that "stolen" photo. I wish her good luck with searching and I am looking forward to the results!
I also had some conflict with Czech chick who used my and my friend's photos for Czech blog. Normally I would not have a problem, because she did not pretend to be original author of those photos and she posted links to the originals. But this chick was so rude, saying that maybe it was my friend, who copied the photos, that I got angry. She also obviously did not believe we take photos of the wolves (when I said Allerlei took one of those photos and she should quote the source properly, she

Of course I gave them also another presents, but this was meant as a little joke. I made gingerbread figures with colorful icing for Allerlei (who loves squirrels), for Kajula (who loves polar bears) and for BlueFox-cz (his name says all). Red fox symbolises me and finally, as Allerlei loves my cookies, I made a special portion for her - cookies with chocolate and nuts in a form of a squirrel

And... shame on North Dakota for degrading women to living incubators. I can not believe this is possible in the 21th Century and it makes me proud of my country which is very liberal in this area and definitely does not force raped women to enjoy even more pain and trauma.
News: I got accepted for some working practise, so I should get some working experience. The idea is that you work 2 months for free in some company which participates in the special program organized by EU. The company gets money for it, you get experience and then you have better chance to gain a normal job. So I took my part and I should start in 10 days. It is better than staying home without money and practise - so now I will be without money, but getting some practise and working habits.

At first let me wish you all the best for 2012 - happy new year, people!
I hope you will enjoy many amazing moments, that you will keep your beloved and you will make also new friends I wish you to stay healthy, because it is the most important thing!
I also must thank you for all support you gave me in 2011 - I hope my dA year 2012 will be at least as nice as 2011, because thanks to you, that year was really great when it came to dA things!
But in general, I am happy 2011 is over. It was not a good year for me and my family. Too many bad events, too many disappointments, too many days spent in hospital and even sadder places. So I hope 2012 can be a new start for something nice again.
And because I am a person who loves turning points, start of the new year is a good chance to set my goals. So although some people are mad about it, let me set my New Year's resolution:

Over the years I have produced a range of tutorials on artistic use of the computer. Most of them concerns rather general concepts and can hopefully give something regardless of which program you are using or even be of some interest for traditional, non-digital artists. Some examples of my art can be found in the gallery.
That said, to get the most out of these you should know that I mainly use the open-source image manipulation program GIMP. I also work a lot with the painter program MyPaint. These are both very powerful programs capable of great artistic expression. Being open-source programs, they are both legally free to download and use without any cost. They exist for many platforms, including Linux, Mac and Windows, so they are worth trying out if you haven't already.

sorry for kiriban winner, you will be featured soon, I did not forget you I just write some sad journals and my mood is far from nice, so this is not the best time for kiriban.
By the way, there is a new one: send me a printscreen of 1 022 222 pageviews and you will win a feature (no feature for porn or animal cruelty, ok).
Well, I have news about wolves, as I have promised to keep you informed.
If you do not know what I speak about, check this journal, please!
Two ZOO Brno's employees answered my question about wolves and one of them was a zoologist, so I think we can consider that reply trustworthy.
So: as you probably already know, my beloved Atila, famous alpha wolf from ZOO Brno, died. He died of old age (10 years). His death is the cause of the current bad state of other wolves. The death of the alpha is followed with a lot of stress, as the hierarchy of the pack is completely crushed and in terrible mess.

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!

"E" is still not working properly :/
But I have to say that the last art-thief who told ME whole made up story about how she took a photo, which in fact belongs to me, totally cracked me up it was just soooo funny that I even could not report her she gave me such a good laugh, that I am almost GRATEFUL to her! I wish all art-thieves here on dA would be so stupid and funny hahaha!
Also, one thing really pleased me - I had my public transport ticket on the table. As I always pay for three months, I have to have an ID card with a photo of me. This small ID photo was taken in spring 2011. Next to this card, I had a little pack of another "ID" photos I got for my driving licence. Those photos were taken some week ago, so spring 2012.
I just took 2011 ID photo and compared it with 2012 ID photo.
