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

Shame about fennecs + my favourite wolves - PHOTOSHi!Shame about fennecs + my favourite wolves - PHOTOS3 years ago in Personal More Like This
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

So, let me announce a new kiriban: it is 1 011 111 - we are quite close to it, so do not hesitate!
Send me a printscreen of it as a proof via note and you will be featured (no feature for animal cruelty or porn, thanks).
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
Personal update and zoo news I.Hi guysPersonal update and zoo news I.5 months ago in Personal More Like This
At first some update:
it is simply typical – once you get to know you need to pay a lot for a doctor each month (12 x year), your cell phone dies XD so I had to buy other one – it makes me angry not just because of money loss and because I did nothing wrong with the device (it broke down just few weeks after guarantee ended), but also because I lost some photos I use my cell to take shots of zoo habitats and enclosures, so I can not present today’s news in a way I planned.
Also, thank you so much – thanks to the stuff you bought and thanks to some donations you sent me during last year, I can allow myself to enjoy some vacation. I decided to use money that way to have at least some joy I would like to visit Germany and Netherland to take some photos of dolphins and other animals. Thank you once more guys! I hope I will meet Lunchi and Svenimal there you enabled me to have some trip and I am grateful for it!

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

Hurray, lions! This journal is dedicated to Svenimal and amrodel, who love lions
There is a family of Barbary lions Lily and imon and their cubs Mark and Éta and there are two adult females Gina and Buzeta, who are imon's sisters and who inhabit neighbouring exhibit I like imon, he is wonderful young male with amazing dark and huge mane, but he is also very gentle and patient father and protective partner

Apology + animals on snow - PHOTOSHi palsApology + animals on snow - PHOTOS2 years ago in Personal More Like This
I would like to apologize. I was so annoyed with the thieves (and I still am) and all similar ignorrant persons, that I almost stopped replying to notes and comments... Let's say that if you write "use of this photo is allowed only with written permission" and then you do not answer those, who DO ask, it is definitely not the most fair thing :/ so sorry, I promise I will answer as soon as possible. It really would not be fair if those, who are able to politely ask for permission, would suffer for the acts of the thieves. Once more, I am sorry that allowed all those rude thieves to annoy me that much that I stopped replying...
And... after several months of terrible overeating caused by diploma thesis, family problems stress, I had no courage to try to use a scale to check my weight. I just felt that my body is covered with fat again. But then I decided to move and checked it - I found out that after all those months of "piggy" overeating, I got only some 4 kilos back, which

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

The history of the birthday cakeOrigin of the birthday cakeThe history of the birthday cake2 years ago in Art Features More Like This
In most parts of the world a birthday is just not a birthday without a cake. I thought it would be interesting to learn how this tradition started and how it transformed from one culture to the other.
Cake, the word
The word Cake goes back to the 13th century. The word is of Viking origin, from the Old Norse "kaka". It is described as a baked flour confection sweetened with sugar or honey; it is mixed with eggs and often includes milk and fat.
The cake evolution
Cakes were very different from what we know today, in ancient Greece they started off as bread-like, sweetened with honey.
In the middle-ages, Germany used a sweetened bread-dough in the shape of baby Jesus to commemorate his birthday. It was later that the Birthday Cake truly emerged as a celebration item

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.
News, busy and wonderful big cats - PHOTOSHi pals!News, busy and wonderful big cats - PHOTOS2 years ago in Personal More Like This
I am pretty tired but busy (it is 2AM here), so just a short text:
1) Kiriban has been caught, winner will be featured next time - congrats new kiriban is - aww - 1M! I am so excited!
2) I am still trying to lose weight and I still use that online program. It is pretty good. I eat 5000 Kj a day and today I went for the first evening walk of this year (until today, it was too cold, even snowing) - we were walking very fast, burning 2000 Kj in just one hour. Great! I also exercise, so I hope to lose even more weight! The bad thing is that time to time, I feel dizzy and like passing out. It has never happened to me, but when the dizzy feeling comes, I immediately take a piece of high-quality chocolate. It is a great first aid
3) I got more active in a group which is questioning the temporary dolphin show in Prague. It takes few hours a day, but it is very interesting, the issue is becoming very hot here. We have news, but... well, maybe in next journal? (too tired f

Haha, my family went shopping and they brough me some new trousers - next time they had to went to that shop again, because I needed smaller size
I do not know if it is possible, but it seems my feet are smaller too I used to have size 38, but now I need to have 37 when I buy new shoes. I would welcome size 37,5, it would be fitting. Interesting!
Now I get back to work!
I am not a fan of B&W animal photos, but for a change......

Dangerous animal!!! + ZOO Zlin - PHOTOSHi!Dangerous animal!!! + ZOO Zlin - PHOTOS4 years ago in Personal More Like This
Many people say, that ZOO Zlin is the best ZOO in the Czech republic. I must agree, that its exhibits are absolutely fantastic - huge, 100% natural, interesting and very photographer-friendly. Also, you can enter many exhibits, being in the enclosure together with big parrots, emus, kangaroos, deers and lemurs. ZOO Zlin just does not keep species I like - they had no canines except of maned wolves and from big cats, they have only tigers and lions. So I have visited it only once, I think. Since this time, ZOO got Hyacinth macaws, red pandas and very rarely kept New Guinea Singing Dogs, so I think I might visit it again next year
To speak about dangerous animal - ZOO built big modern pavilion, tropical hall Yucatan for South American species few years ago, housing also critically endangered Cuban crocodile. But they had to move them few days ago, because this species is extremely agressive. Crocodile were attacking the keepers. So ZOO will somehow rebuild the enclosure for a new
White wolves and friends - PHOTOS and a bit sad.Hi!White wolves and friends - PHOTOS and a bit sad.3 years ago in Personal More Like This
Here are some new photos for you.
I am just sad when I look at Alex and Clair, the oldest females of the pack (the last photo). They both look so.... used do not be mistaken, it is not just winter/summer fur change. They are too slim, too used, losing too much fur, some parts of their bodies seem to be almost bare, they had even some small bleeding injuries... I think their bodies are too tired after so many pups it was nice to see them both meet next to the lake, as they walked away together as old friends, although they used to have at least one very big conflict which resulted in death of Alex's puppies. But it was a sad sight too. I do not want to be pesimistic, but I do not believe Alex and Clair will survive 2012 my personal guess is, that ZOO will put them to sleep in autumn.... but it is really my personal opinion
Nah, people: it is MY SPECULATION! ZOO has not announced anything like this, so do not blame it, please! I simply think that they would not survive wi
