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
Baby wolves were born!!!Hi!Baby wolves were born!!!3 years ago in Personal More Like This
This is one year old journal, but I have great news - I just read that in local ZOO, baby arctic wolves were born again!
They still stay in a burrow, but as soon as they get older and leave the den, I will do my best to bring you some photos
Photos in this journal were taken in 2011
Here come the first photos of baby arctic wolves, who were born in ZOO Brno this year
The quality is very bad, they were some 20-30 metres from me, but I think you can still enjoy their cuteness

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.
The ZOO repeatedly applied te

"Have no fear of perfection - You'll never reach it! "
Have you studied Photography? I'm intrigued to know whether or not a qualification in Photography has made you a better, or indeed a worse photographer. Or has there been no change? This week, The Photography Blog asks whether or not a Photography Degree is worth the paper it's written on. Graduation in any field these days doesn't mean that you'll immediately get a job in your desired area. Not these days. So is it worth embarking on study related to photography when in the end, you could get to the same place without the paper stating what you are capable of? Photography is one of a small number of job areas where what you've done speaks higher volumes than whether or not you're
IVAD HUGE FEATURE!HAPPY INTERNATIONAL VULTURE AWARENESS DAY!!!IVAD HUGE FEATURE!11 months ago in Personal More Like This
One of my favorite days of the year! I will be celebrating Vulture Awareness day at Tracy Aviary which I think is one of the best places to celebrate this day.
And of course, here is a feature of as many different vultures as I was able to find on DA.
Vultures include 2 groups, the New World (Americas) and Old World vultures (Europe, Africa and Asia). Old & New world vultures are not closely related, but they have evolved to fill similar niches. They are birds that specialize in eating animals that are already dead (save for the palm nut vulture). There are three species of vultures that are able to use the sense of smell to find food. These include the Turkey, Greater and Lesser yellow-headed vultures. The remaining use keen eyesight, or follow vultures that can smell carrion.
About half of the world's vultures are threatened with extinction. Threats to vultures inclu

People, I had SO amazing day yesterday!
The weather prognosis was very bad, but finally, the day was sunny and wonderful.
I woke up at 4:30 AM to get to Prague, where I met my friend BlueFox-cz. Together, we travelled to ZOO Děčín, where we saw babies of Máa and Tomáek, two foxes we know very well (BlueFox-cz was the one who took Tomáek to the ZOO in his car. And our friends were those who saved and rised Máa). Kits were cute, but already quite big. We spent few hours in the ZOO, watching baby wild cats, funny squirrels, a running wolf and of course, the foxes.
Then we moved to one wild-preserve. Our friends were given a baby fox!
Myslivci... Well, who are "myslivci"? There is no English tranlastion for this Czech word. Myslivci are Czech hunters, but in fact, they are supposed to CARE for the forest and all the animals. But in the Czech republic, they mostyl have a bad reputation - not because they kill and ea

Oh my, nobody caught the kiriban very unusual...
Thank you for your lovely messages under my last journal
About the title. Yeah, celebration! I am JUST overweight now
You probably rise your eyebrows, thinking that I am out of my mind if I celebrate that.
But some of you probably remember I started losing weight some 1,5 year ago - that time, I was obese. And not only obese, my body shape was described as the second level of obesity. Which is a LOT! And such condition is usually considered to be a serious threat for health. So I have changed my style of life, eating MORE and higher quality ingredientes. And I have started doing some sports a bit more, so I have improved my physical condition
So during all those months, I have lost some 25 kilos so far
I went through Obesity II and Obesity I to just "overweight" level.
Lot of work!
But because I lost the weight slowly, there was no yo-yo effect even when I stopped using my new health styl

International Vulture Awareness Day falls on Sat 7th Sept this year http://www.vultureday.org/2013/index.php
Vultures are an ecologically vital group of birds that face a range of threats in many areas that they occur.
Populations of many species are under pressure and some species are facing extinction.
Vultures provide vital ecosystem services as they scavenge on carcasses, and are nature's most efficient clean-up service. However, the use of a drug called diclofenac in treating sick cattle has threatened their existence.
The main objective of such people engagement activity is to create mass support and awareness of the consequence of losing important keystone specie, which could lead to the spread of infectious disease, environmental pollution through groundwater contamination, as well as rabies with the increase in the number of feral dogs and big cats.
Can you spot the odd one

How to : Find Art ThievesPlease this journal, so that a lot of people can read it.How to : Find Art Thieves2 years ago in Art Features More Like This
I noticed that a lot of people don't know how to search for their photos on the internet, so here is a short tutorial. Unfortunately there isn't much you can do about art thieves, but i still think it is important to look out for them.
1. visit Google.com
2. Go to the page of the photo you want to search and click "show image"
3. Copy the Link and paste it into google.
4. This page should open, click "search by image".
5. Now you can browse trough the results.
6. The less results the happier you should be.
EDIT : You can also use websites like : tineye.com and iqdb.com
This was pointed out to me by some people, personally i have no experience with them, but i am sure that they work too.

Artwork copyright © Wilson Williams, Jr.
With the growth in popularity of the e-book many authors are seeing a glimmer of hope and realizing that they can get their work out there without having to break into the velvet roped publishing house exclusive party. This means that you will begin to get even more solicitations from those authors looking for artists to bring visuals to their words.
If you have a website or have done any degree of online advertising of your artwork, you have probably gotten an e-mail with a similar message as the title. If not, you will at some point. It's best to be prepared now. For those who have gotten it, nine times out of ten you aren’t sure how to respond to it, what should you ask, how do you respond?

I thought it was quite a nice incentive to ask my watchers and visitors what they'd like me to do, to celebrate those +7,500 pageviews (who've spiraled on to even greater lengths, namely +10,000 right now).
Everyone pretty much responded positive on my suggestion of featuring all my watchers, so here it is! A big feature of all 92 - now 95 (there are still 98 listed, but 3 have deactivated and are still listed, which is a bit weird) of my watchers.
I think I'll feature my last couple of visitors as well, before my Premium Membership runs out. I was thinking of what else I could do – perhaps change our username to something that would better show there's two of us running this account, but "Mouselemur-and-Me" just doesn't look good. We wanted to change it into "Mouselemur&Me" but we're not allowed to use the "&" symbol. Pretty lame, but this is fine, too, I guess.

Right brain warriors in the new age will be the coveted candidates ordained to lead and guide us; lifting the torch to light the way forward into a brave new beautiful world.
Artists have always feared that they are unappreciated and that the march of progress comes only from business, science and their machines. 1984 was imagined by an artist projecting these exact fears. Our guest essayist suggests the computer will never be our master, but only the super high speed counting machine it was meant to be leaving humans with only one pure task— being creative.
