Tiger drama in local ZOO + animals - PHOTOSHi people!Tiger drama in local ZOO + animals - PHOTOS3 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!
Bitten by a squirrel + funny ZOO Vienna - PHOTOSHiBitten by a squirrel + funny ZOO Vienna - PHOTOS3 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

Nobody caughed the kiriban?
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.
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!

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

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
Poor wolves are ill :( Photos (but with warning)Hi,Poor wolves are ill :( Photos (but with warning)2 years ago in Personal More Like This
today it was the worst ZOO visit ever.
This spring I noticed that the molting (process of loosing the thick winter fur and having just much shorter summer fur) of the wolves is very different from the molting I witnessed during the last years. The wolves looked ill, like having scabs on their faces and bodies.
It made me nervous, so I was curious about my today's visit. I planned to shoot baby wolves.
What I saw shocked me.
ALL the pack members seem to have some skin problems. Less or more serious, all of them are effected, showing symptoms. I do not know if it is mange or so, but it looks horrible. Two wolves (and I am VERY afraid the most ill one is Atila) have almost bare bodies, they lost almost all the fur. All of them keep scratching. What a horrible, horrible sight, I almost cried there even the tiny puppy is ill, it was born just few weeks ago, but I see its legs show the signs of the same illness.
I hope the vets will find the cure.
I am soooo down since I saw them toda
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.

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

Here you can see INCREDIBLE argumentation they used to defend the stealing: http://woxys.deviantart.com/journal/Fail-thieves-Wolves-on-snow-fresh-PHOTOS-348714022 - just check the comments.
I can not believe it. That person only REPOSTED my and other photographers photos, usually adding no description which would inform about animals. They just posted photos.
But when I post a photo, I in 99% include description which should educate people about portraid animal - but still this person blames me from not being interested in animals????
At second, situation with my grandfather got extremely wrong. It is all so bad and right now, I do not think this situation can have a good solution. So.

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

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
