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

Ookami (A deified wolf in Japanese Mythology)There are some animals and creatures in Japanese mythology. Almost of them are servants of gods. For example, foxes are servants of Inari-shin, who is a god of harvest.Ookami (A deified wolf in Japanese Mythology)2 years ago in Personal More Like This
Only two creatures took part in a category of gods -that is to say, wolves and snakes-.
Chichibu had been the most active area of a faith to wolves.
Long time ago, Yamato-Takeru-no-Mikoto [日本武尊] (who is one of heroes in Japanese mythology) went on an expedition. But when he went through in the deep forest of Chichibu [秩父] mountains, it was in a dense fog and he lost his way. Then, one white wolf appeared in front of him. The white wolf walked a head of him and guided to the outside of the forest. He escaped the deep forest at last.
Yamato-Takeru-no-Mikoto greatly appreciated a help of a white wolf. He constructed a shrine. The wolf which helped him was joined in a group of gods. The god of the wolf was called "Ooguchi-no-Magami [大口真神]". (It means "a g

"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

Hypno Art Contest!This will be my first ever contest and I thought about how I could make it big so I decided to offer big prizes and as many contest winners and runner ups will be given prizes as well as a grand prize winner I want this to be as successful as possible for this contest and I wanted to add an angle to it as well so I thought of my favorite show of all time I must say W.I.T.C.H. and than I thought it would be ok to just post normal W.I.T.C.H. art like you can find all over DA AND LET ME TELL YOU THEIR ARE SOME GREAT ONES OUT THERE, but I also have seen some unique types out their two some that add my personal favorite angel hypnosis. It to me adds new feeling to the world of W.I.T.C.H. and I wanted to use some type of effect in the art submitted so I thought it would be great if some of the art entries had some characters of W.I.T.C.H. under the spell of the horn of hypnos (i.e. hypnotized forever etc, etc).

IP confusionIt's sad to see people fighting about intellectual property rights when they apparently have no clue what those are, how they work and what is allowed (and not).IP confusion3 years ago in Art Features More Like This
Prime example: http://boltstrueno1fanever.deviantart.com/art/Onyx-Forepaw-Feb-2012-Ref-286737985 vs. http://yasuoxingxing.deviantart.com/gallery/#/d4vcima
Obviously the latter is similar to the first.
The question is: is this allowed?
To answer that question, it is important to understand what rules apply and what intellectual property (IP) is.
There are three different kinds of IP that can apply here:
As the name hints this is the right to make copies of a work. It does not protect ideas, only the actual recorded work - artwork, documents, music etc.
This means that if someone copies your art (by directly copying it, by tracing it or otherwise adapting your work) you can certainly take action, but there is little you can do to prevent someone else creating their own

Yay, I am overweight! :-) + very old ZOO photosHi!Yay, I am overweight! :-) + very old ZOO photos1 year ago in Personal More Like This
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

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

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?

IVAD HUGE FEATURE!HAPPY INTERNATIONAL VULTURE AWARENESS DAY!!!IVAD HUGE FEATURE!1 year 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

Category B: Sky in his own beauty.
