Poor wolves are ill :( Photos (but with warning)Hi,Poor wolves are ill :( Photos (but with warning)10 months 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

Huray, I am finally healthy. Finally it was not salmonellosis, but something very similar - so I took the same pills and now I am quite fine, which is good. Thanks for support

thank you for kind voluntary donations for free calendar (http://woxys.deviantart.com/art/Animal-photocalendar-2012-FOR-FREE-269531520) I really appreciate it!
Kiriban winners will be featured next time, ok?
Today I post photos of my favourite cats, snow leopards. All were taken in ZOO Jihlava with Canon Powershot S5 IS. I still have some sharp photos of nice moments, which I somehow "saved for better occassion". Ironically, I now do not feel like posting them, because although they are sharp and bright, they do not have SLR quality of shots taken with my SLR camera. There are also some very cute poses of baby snow leopard, so I might still post them later. I will consider it.
Nah, bad mood here.
And thank you for every , of course!

Yay, I have only three last driving lessons before the final exam!
And I need to start writing my final thesis again! I bet you hate this line at least as much as me
I also made a totally delicious dessert with two different cremes, it took me at least 5 hours to finish it - but do not worry, one can eat only very small portion every day and I will give some pieces to my grandfather, friend and sister's boyfriend
And I need to ride a bike again - that Alpen trip interrupted my sporting again and I need to get used to it again
I at least had some nice hour of fast walking on Monday
Here come some cats
It is Sri Lankan leopard, Snow leopard, Amur leopard, Persian leopard, then again Sri Lankan leopard, Snow leopard, Amur leopard and Persian leopard. I hope you like it
Few words about art-thieves.Hi!Few words about art-thieves.1 year ago in Personal More Like This
My dear watchers, I really appreciate your support when it comes to fight against art-thieves.
But I bet there are also many people whose thoughs can be interpretted like "why is she so hysterical about it?". Some people say, that the fact, that some photo is worth stealing, is a kind of compliment.
Ok, so let me present my point.
At first: why am I so unhappy about reposting of photos?
Because, pals, if somebody just reposts a photo without any change, it just gives totally open space to other people who would find the photos on his/her blog, taking it and posting it themselves. And because the first person did not credit the original author, they also do not credit the creator. The more people do that, the more times the photo is reposted. Always without credit. Sooner or later, it becomes a kind of "public" property and original author has almost no chance to effect this situation.
Do you know this photo? Honestly, EVERYBODY knows it. But do you know original author? Do you

Small Hints how to get views,faves etc.For a lot of you it might be nothing new, but since many of you are either new on dA or not experienced with something like "strategies" to get views, comments and faves for their works i (your most favourite dA group guy :icongbk666: ) thought i write up a few hopefully useful hints for you.Small Hints how to get views,faves etc.1 month ago in Personal More Like This
1. Upload as many drawings / photos etc. as you can. Some of you would argue now that it can be counterproductive if the deviations are not good, but i come to that point in #2
2. Join Groups. A Ton of them.. at least 15-25 . And submit your stuff to them on a regular base. BUT only the things you consider by yourself as "good" . The rest is for your gallery only, and interesting for those deviants who want to see sketches, WIP's etc.
A photographer often makes 100-500 photos in a 2-3 hours long shooting..but in the end only 1-3 of all these photos are getting uploaded /used for something since they are the best. Quality >Quantity . Always think that way.

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

The quality is very bad, they were some 20-30 metres from me, but I think you can still enjoy their cuteness

Some sad news about wolves (?) and PHOTOS of themHi!Some sad news about wolves (?) and PHOTOS of them2 years ago in Personal More Like This
I must say I am a bit nervous I visited ZOO Brno few times in last few weeks and I see that one of three oldest pack members is not fluffy yet ZOO Brno's oldest wolves are Atila (male) and Alex and Clair (females, sisters). Arctic wolves live only some 7 years in the wild, but can have much longer life in ZOOs. But while Atila still looks nice and fluffy, both females look somehow... "used" this year maybe it is because they gave birth to so many pups and they also used to have some fight (at least one serious two years ago). When you look at their faces, they start to remind of those photos of very very old wolves you can see here on dA and one of the females (I do not which one of them is Alex or Clair) starts to lose fur, her back and hips are moulted
Last time I was watching wolves, ZOO guide came, saying "Do you see that moulted wolf there? It is one of our breeding females. Poor one "u to má asi za sebou"." Saying "u to mít za se
BABY LIONS - photos! But I am ill now :(Hi people!BABY LIONS - photos! But I am ill now :(2 years ago in Personal More Like This
Yesterday I went to ZOO Olomouc with my great friend amrodel - she has never been to this ZOO and because it is one of my the most favorite animal facilities, I really wanted to show her! And because amrodel is a lion lover and because baby lions were born in Olomouc, we could not have a better opportunity to meet! It is always a pleasure to see :devamrodel and we really had fun. It was fantastic to watch whole lion family - father imon was so desperate, because his babies wanted to play with his tail! He really seemed very unhappy about it. But we had fun.
Thank you for great meeting and for a great present (amrodel gave me a printed version of her famous and beautiful photo of my beloved wolf Lobo), friend
In the ZOO, I saw also something which took my breath away - I will show you later!
But after I got back, I got some leight gastric problems. I had them also today, but it was very far from anything serious. But during this eve

I say that all the time - copyright problems come in waves XD at first, those were those two thieves (dA still has not removed the second stolen picture yet *facepalm*), then I found another three of my photos edited and posted by three different persons without any credit. No prob, all those people removed them or gave credit, when I contacted them. Yesterday, two different persons posted edited photos of my best friend Allerlei and today, I found another girl who manipulated few of my photos without any credit. I noticed her and I wait for her reply. And when you look at photography category, it is full of google photos again
EDIT: people, just a strange thing happened. I usually do not report people if they edited my work and posted it without my permission or without giving credit. I usually inform them and ask for credit. I wait even weeks or months for reply. But when I see such person has been warned several times and simply ignorre it, I do report.

Dangerous animal!!! + ZOO Zlin - PHOTOSHi!Dangerous animal!!! + ZOO Zlin - PHOTOS2 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
Some bad stuff, dA love and white wolves - PHOTOSHello!Some bad stuff, dA love and white wolves - PHOTOS2 years ago in Personal More Like This
I must say, that I see it more and more often here on dA. When I browse photos of animals, I almost everytime find photos of road kills or dead animals in general, often deatiled shots of their entrails and decayed bodies. I understand that some people can not take photos of alive animals in ZOOs or in the wild, but seriously... do they need to post dead animals? Moreover, usually bad quality snapshots of bowels? I think some people just forget that this is deviantART. AAAAAARRRRRRRTTTT. I do not think that remains of dead racoons are art. I find it disgusting. At least it should be posted to category "Horror", not wild animals :/ just saying my opinion.
Edit: people, I speak about REALLY disgusting photos of animals, which are torn into bloody pieces by cars. I do NOT speak about photos of dead animals in general, which can be used for anatomy references
On the other hand, I hope you noticed that time to time, I give some critiques, usually to people, whose photos ar
