I visit various ZOOs to take many pictures of interesting animals: in my gallery, you can find mostly wolves, foxes, big cats and marine mammals, but also some other creatures which deserve attention :nod: I am also trying to bring you information about animals to share the knowledge :D

Welcome to my gallery, dear visitor! :hug:

Rather Koukalova than Zatopek + animal photos!

Journal Entry: Mon Apr 17, 2017, 11:32 AM


Hi guys,

I can’t believe that the last journal was published 6 months ago!
But let’s be honest, I wasn’t very active even when it comes to posting new photos :oops:

Ok, I’m still alive, kicking and ready to show you some animals, at least time to time!
This time I prepared a journal with shots taken in random German zoos, scroll down to check them ;)

And some personal news?
Year 2016 was pretty awesome for me.
I’ve learned so many new things, my job offered so many challenges I went through with success and I was also finally promoted :aww:
I also managed to improve my relation with a family, so once again, nice.
There might be some serious loss too, but well, that’s life, I guess :nod:  

There is one thing I am trying to learn.
Kind of new life approach.
In past years, I had in mind a motto/life style which was essential to Czech Olympic legend, marathon runner Emil Zátopek: “Getting tough? Try harder!“
I tried to follow it or at least felt guilty and as a loser every time I did not.

But I become to be aware that life is not about kicking yourself to TRY HARDER AND HARDER AND TO BE PERFECT EVERY TIME.
That it is not about denying your body needs or feelings.
That sometime you have all the right to feel tired, annoyed, lazy. That if you feel exhausted, you have all the right to spend a weekend in the bed, although there is a wonderful weather outside, which invites you to have a trip.
It is not about pushing yourself to edit and post photos on DA, when you are simply not in the mood and the only aspect which drives you is guilt or feeling of duty, not joy.

In the Czech Republic, biathlon is increasingly popular.
Also thanks to a very successful representative Gábina Koukalová, young lady who is so… sybaritic!
She obviously listens to her feelings, to her body needs. She is able to give cameras a naïve smile and said “yeah, after that race, I woke up at night, went to a fridge and ate a BIG cake and a big portion of rabbit fat. I am such a pig!”
She DOES want to win (and she wins!), but obviously she is well-aware that there are so many things which are way more important than winning races. And I believe this is exactly the reason why she is so successful and also popular.

I think Gábina’s life approach is worth to be followed.
So for this year, I decided to be less strict about my self-control. To relax when I feel tired. To have a chocolate bar when I feel exhausted. To not smile when I don’t feel happy.
To not save money, but rather buy stuff I like or to allow myself to travel a bit!

I’m not sure I wonderful 2016 can be repeated and I am rather nervous about 2017, as after “ups”, there are usually “downs”.
But let’s wait for the things the life would bring…!

Have great time!

Woxys

I am not a celebrity person. Benedict Cumberbatch? Katy Perry? Phew, ok, those are good actors or singers. Nice, but... heh, no fuss, really. But I have a soft spot for Petra Kvitova - Czech tennis player (current no. 16). She's always had her ups and downs. She is able to defeat a player of top 3, just to be eliminated 1:6 and 2:6 by a qualifier in the next round. She is a nigthmare for the nerves of her fans! :giggle: In the tennis era when almost every lady on the court looks like a supermodel, Petra is wonderfuly normal with bigger belly, which she compensates with wonderful smile and modesty. She is an inspiration for me and I always think of her and her battle cry "Pojď'!" (= come on!) when I feel down.
 
Double Wimbledon champion had to fight her biggest battle in past months. Just few days before Christmas, she was attacked and stabbed by an intruder in her own flat in the Czech Republic. He cut nerves and tendons of her left hand when she, as a left-hander, tried to protect herself. He left and he has not been captured yet. Petra was taken to the special Bohemian facility, where the experts on hand-surgery did their best to save not just her health, but also career. When released home from medical care, her hand in plaster, Petra immediately claimed that she will work extremely hard to get back to play tennis again. However, doctors were not that optimistic. With big help of medical authorities, support of her well-chosen team, nice family and hopefully also fans, Petra was ready for comeback. And she did it with style - today she won Aegon Classic Birmingham 2017, the second turnament she attended after her surgery! I am incredibly happy for her and such miracluous return and I believe this story is worth sharing.

Fingers crossed for Wimbledon, my dear Petra. P:heart:jď!!!

Hey, I absolutely adore your work - some of your pieces are amazing! Your work was actually so good, it inspired me to completely change the style of art I made on dA! I've now started doing photography of nature and animals, like you do.

Could you have a look at my art, and tell me if it's any good? Also could you tell me if I'm selling my prints correctly, as I'm a bit of a newbie at that.

Thanks, and I'll keep favouriting your artwork! :D

Malý typ na výlet vřele doporučuji pokud se budete motat po šumavě tak zaskočit si do Borové Lady, mají tam volně průstupné soví volierý a je to tam velice hezké. S pozdravem Milan

moc Vám děkuji za tip, jsem spíš na šelmy, ale na Šumavě si ráda zaskočím za vlky, což je v podstatě sesterská expozice pro Vaše sovy :-) mějte se krásně! Wox

Ježíš, jak se tak koukám na tu svou předchozí zprávu, už jsem zase musel něco psal ožralej, protože jinak budu muset jít vrátit nejenom diplom, ale i to maturitní vysvědčení. Já se moc omlouvám za ty hrubky. Jinak ten tip je opravdu fajn. Navíc ta lokalita patří k mým oblíbeným. a pokud má člověk štěstí natrefí tam v okolních lesích na leccos. Jen několik let zpátky jsem tam natrefil na čerstvé rysí stopy a před dvěma lety na nádhernou zmiji.

S pozdravem Milan

Hey woxys! You have some awesome photographs, I've been following your work for about 2 years now, maybe.
I was wondering if you ever did a journal on your equipment or anything of the sorts? And if not, if you ever plan on doing something like that. ^^
