Wonderful world of animals
Hello everybody! I decided to make an enormous feature of amazing animals. Look how wonderful they are, how beautiful world they create. People should definitely take care of all species before it will be too late.
As the collection is really big, I divided it into special categories. For me, each of these photos is unique in its own way, hope you enjoy this long, but how interesting journey :)

Wicked Wormsy presents... DD Suggestions I
:D I always thought that being on dA means not only sharing your own Art with others but sharing the Art of others with others too. :laughing:
;) Sounds complicated, doesn't it? :lmao:
:D To make it simpler: I love doing features in my Journal to show my friends my finds.
:aww: But as I also love showing those finds to bigger audience, I love sending DD suggestions to our amazing Gallery Moderators. :heart:
:aww: It makes me very happy when my suggestions are accepted. It would make me even happier if all of them were.
:laughing: Unfortunately the number of spots for DDs is limited and with tens of suggestions every GM is getting daily it's impossible to showcase them all.
:excited: So here goes the feature I was thinking of for quite some time...
:heart: First: a few gems that received the DD.
:heart: Next: quite a bunch of amazing images that were suggested by me but for many reasons weren't granted the feature.
:D One small disclaimer though. I am NOT goi

We are both biologists. Our main interests are: entomology, arachnology, parasitology and ecology.

Current Residence: Warsaw, Poland
Favourite style of art: Macrophotography
  • Listening to: Radio TOK FM
  • Watching: Computer screen
Our images are being stolen every day. Mostly on blogs and websites, this time situation is much different.

US company, called THE MERRICK MINT made special collectible coins with frogs, and on one of them, we found our picture.
Guess what? They didn't ask us for permission to use it! They didn't pay us for our hard work, our equipment, our time. They treat us like garbage, maybe because we don't live in US?

We asked them via e-mail and on their official Facebook profile about this situation. We have no reply and our comments were removed from their FB. What can we do?

They are selling our work, earning money, leaving nothing for the authors of the original picture. This is madness...

You can find their product here (it is not working now):…

They removed the product, here is the image that was on their page:…

Our original work, uploaded on DA is here:
Grrroooooarrrrrr by Dark-Raptor

We don't know how to act. We are far from US, and we have no time and money to get the lawyer. We are thinking about removing our works from the web...

This is what we get for what we do...
