I am changing my rules to the Attribution-NonCommercial 3.0 Unported (CC BY-NC 3.0) license as of today, following an advice from DamselStock. Let's hope there will be much less disputes and misunderstanding now :)

**A note about llamas**
If you wish to give me a llama, please do so on my main account (akelataka) as I will not return a llama from here (while I always return a llama on my main account). Thank you! :heart:


This is my (:iconakelataka:'s) side account for uploading animal photos which I love taking. You may find here mainly wolves and other canines and birds, because these are my #1 favorites. But I'll try to make this gallery full of different animals photographs that I'll manage to take in zoos or wildlife, possibly from all vertebrate and invertebrate taxa!

All of the photos to be uploaded (I am not gonna change the ones I have uploaded earlier, but please lets assume these rules apply to them as well) will be uploaded under the Creative Commons Attribution-Noncommercial 3.0 Unported License.

That means:
1.) The copyright to the stock photos in this gallery belongs to *animalphotos. I am granting you permission to use these images in your art but not to claim my unedited photos as your art. Only the finished artwork is your copyright.

2.) You must edit the images significantly. Do not simply add a filter and a bit of text and call it art. In order to use my stock you must do more than colors/levels/curves changes. Use them in manipulations, as references for traditional medium art, for inspiration, etc...

Do not just paste one of my animals onto a background, add a filter over it and call it art. That is copying and pasting and it is not a true photomanipulation. Doing so will have me contacting the dA Help Desk to have your work removed.

3.) My stock is for personal use only. You may not use my stock for commercial works without first discussing the terms with me.

In other words, feel free to use these photos any way you like (unless you want to sell them). You don't have to ask me, though a link back here would be nice, so other people have the chance to use the pictures as well! Feel free to use them as:
- References for your artwork
- School/work presentations
- Science projects
- Website/blog design, content or decoration
- Photomanipulations of any kind
- All above outside DA
etc, etc...

However, you may not do the following with the stock:
- Sell the picture/use it commercially. This applies to DA prints as well.
If you with to sell DA prints, please consider donating few DA points to this stock account to keep it running, Thank you very much :)

:bulletorange:Why am I doing this?
- Because this world needs more images for free uses and less art-thieves.
- Because I love taking photos of animals, but I am no "real photographer"; I use automatic digital compact camera and I have no serious use for my photos. No other use than sharing it with you.
