ZOO Dvur Kralove - PHOTOS + lens troubles?Hi pals!Kiriban was caught and the winner will be featured soon I also passed all your comments and compliments (on the last journal's photos) to my parents, they were very pleased and thanked you so thanks!This weekend I spent in mountain and I visited one of my favourite ZOOs, Dvur Kralove nad Labem. I was a bit disappointed that they moved cheetahs (I did not see them at all), because this ZOO was very good for taking photos of them. They also moved fennec foxes from very photographer friendly enclosure which allowed the foxes to enjoy some sun light into a nocturnal indoor pavilion which is very dark and you can watch the foxes only from above, so I am afraid I lost this place for fennec photos I also did not manage to take good photos of baby tigers and baby leopard although I tried a lot. It seems that my lens refuses to focuse, which scares me I admit I could take some 70 000 photos with it, but... do not die, 55-250 IS! I can not be without photography!
Fantastic white wolves - PHOTOSHi!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.Now so
Bitten by a squirrel + funny ZOO Vienna - PHOTOSHi I used my a bit higher (but still pathetically low) self-confidence to meet another dA member - this time it was Shadow-and-Flame-86, lovely young scientist from Scottland, where she studies marine mammals! It was just perfect, she is very nice person, we had fun (at least me ). I am really glad we met and could chat a lot about her work, ZOOs and animals in general What was the biggest attraction? Giant pandas? Wolves?No! Those were squirrels ZOO Vienna is totally full of wild but tame squirrels. And by full I mean that they are everywhere in a forest part of the ZOO! People feed them with nuts, so they come VERY close to you, they even run to humans, following them and begging I was ready for this and I prepared a sack of wallnuts for me and Shadow-and-Flame-86 to have some fun. It was amazing one squirrel bit me when she took a nut from my fingers - I was rude to hold it too tightly, I think XD other squirrel climbed me chest, other one my
Few words about art-thieves.Hi!So.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
X-mas - being commercial :) fox, wolves - PHOTOSHi people!kiriban winner will be featured next time Today I want to be commercial A bit more than 1 month until Christmas - time to announce my stuff I really think some of those might be nice gifts - especially when it comes to print/gifts, which are not only originals with animal photos, but also USEFUL! Last year, I used donated points to order some of my stuff from DA, because I wanted to know the stuff I sell. I got 6 mugs and I was amazed with quality - I use them on daily basis and they are so cool! And I got also a calendar - and again, I can say the calendar's quality made me really happy, photos are sharp, colours are vivid and the format of calender allows you to note your own stuff into it So I am definitely not ashamed to offer my stuff - I believe it can really make people happy In this journal, I at first feature some of the stuff I sell - then I post a photo to show you, how those mugs really look like. The last photo set will show you, how d
When the stupid cage ruins the photo - PHOTOS XDHi! After lot of waiting, I finally got photobooks I want to sell! I will post some special info about them, but I am amazed with the quality it is printed on photopaper, colours are vivid and... well, layout and quality look very professional IMHO I have 15 of them, each for 25 USD (which includes international shipping). I will surely say more before I will really start selling them I hope you noticed I usually (with today's exception) do my best to post photos without visible captivity. But in some ZOOs (and I must say those ZOOs are mostly foreign ones, not Czech) they use system of double fences (the extrem was Tierpark Berlin with FOUR fences!), which sometime totally prevent you from taking a photo of the animal. It can be real pain! also, many ZOOs offer you comfy glass wall, but there is some stupid annoying part of the cage BEHIND the animal those are two main reasons why I do not post many photos. So today I share some of those ruined phot
Guilty and adorable baby animals - PHOTOSHi!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
Tiger drama in local ZOO + animals - PHOTOSHi people!Once more sorry for low activity. Thesis, thesis. Thesis. Thesis. DIES.Today a white tiger in Czech ZOO Liberec attacked a young guy (he was on practise, not a visitor), who was saved thanks to bravery of two female keepers who hit the cat with some bucket to get his attention. The tiger escaped from the exhibit, so three people, all of them injured by the tiger, stayed inside the cage. The tiger was shot with some drugs and went limp. Fortunately, this whole accident seems to have a happy end, injuries are not severe and the tiger has not been harmed. Just wow, huh... Drama!Finally a feature for Kiriban winner and then some animal photos. Please keep your fingers crossed for me, so I can finish my thesis soon. Thank you!KIRIBAN FEATURE:iconsnowwolf-suraku:
Strange dA people + ZOO in autumn - PHOTOSHi!I got all scared and hysterical that I waisted all sunny autumn days so I have no chance to take any wolf photos with colourful background this year. So when the sun made it to shine through the clowds today, I ran to the ZOO to take some shots. Well, the leaves are still on the branches and nicely golden, so I have some autumn shots in stock again the foxes and wolves are fluffy again, but both of those species were sleepy - I had to wait a lot before wolves decided to move a bit. You might say it is a deal of photographers, but it is something unusual, local wolves tend to have only short moments without activity. Both alpha and beta female seem to be very tired and thin, but at least they seem to have some grown fur I hope they will manage to survive the winter, but it is really a sad sight. Atila, on the other side, is fluffy white pillow as usual, and again his own pups made him feel very uneasy. He is so cute.The title: yup, there are some great persons on this site
Shame about fennecs + my favourite wolves - PHOTOSHi!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
Snow is here - wolves on snow - PHOTOSHi!The first snow came - it was very thin layer, much less than 1cm, so it did not survive the night, but it still pleased me It inspired me to post some photos of wolves on snow - those shots are quite old Wohoo, this number of pageviews? thanks people, it looks nice - I wonder if I can make it to 1 000 000 until the end of 2012! it would be awesome
DD for some of you :)Hi!At first, there is a new kiriban: catch my 955 555 pageviews and send me a printscreen via note as a proof to win a feature No feature for animal cruelty or porn, thanks for understanding.At second, no, I did not get any DD (only one - bur many years ago buhhehehhehe )But I have suggested many deviations for DD and I was disappointed when I got no reply and those deviations have not been accepted I think some of those artists created absolutely incredible work and they definitely deserve more attention.Today, I will show you some of the deviations I have suggested (or plan to suggest) for DD, but which have not been noticed or accepted by admins, which made me really sad and disappointed. DA has some rules for featuring a deviation as a DD, it says that suggested artist should not have a DD yet, it should not be very famous artist and it should include some info about a subject in the descriptions. Those artists followed the rules, but their art has not

Hello ALlI would like to take this random journal to take the time to tell everyone I am increddibly in love with :iconAmathaze: so i've taken the time to hare this with her.. and everyone so she knows and everyone else can know that I love her and am not afraid to admit it... It takes a lot to sit and write out all the words that goes through your head and heart to describe the way you feel for someone that you truly love. I honestly have to contemplate on every word I write to make sure it is the right words. Baby you have always been there for me in ways that may not always have been completely clear to either of us but I know this for a fact. And I do hope you know that this is the same for you. Under no circumstances have I been able to get you out of me head because honestly I never have wanted to get you out of my head. The thought of you makes me incredibly happy and it's that fact that kept
Best! Day! Ever!If January Brony Con was my Gala, then this one was my Sonic Rainboom. What a amazing event it was. Sadly I didn't see UC77.... He couldn't make it to the signing. I was recognized by a couple folks. Signed some pony books that I didn't do.So the screening there was..... The VA's (minus Tabitha) doing a live cast of the Heart's Warming Eve episode. They used a girl from the audience to sub for Rarity and she was good! That was sooo amazing. Then we got to watch the actual episode with them. (They never seen the whole thing until now)Gave all the VA's gift art.For Tara Strong http://i.imgur.com/rjWzd.jpg - At first she didn't believe I drew it and next thing I'm taking a photo with her holding the pic.For Ashleigh Ball http://i.imgur.com/zTFyR.jpg - She totally loved it. Took a picture with her too. I almost chocked here. I told her about Dash being my favorite pony.I drew a Spike for Cathy Weseluck and a Fluttershy for Andrea Libman, but I didn't take photos of the pics! They love
This journal does and doesn't belongOh my god I want one.
Season Wrap UpWell, season 2 has finally come to a close, and I'm sitting here and looking back on it all, with a few thoughts I want to share.I just want to say thank you (again) to everyone that watched and enjoyed the MLP season finale this weekend. There were lots of hard nights and long hours from all of us on the DHX crew to make it the best would possibly could. Of course, there are things that are always going to be imperfect, but overall from what I gather, it seemed well-received.I was also shocked at how many people recognized my OC pony that made a small cameo in this weekend's episode. As a blanket response to a lot of the same questions I've been getting all weekend: No, I did not voice her and I'm unsure as to who did. I would assume just one of the regular VA's. She was put in kind of last minute. The artist who drew her in the storyboard, made her look like my pony (just a coincidence), and after seeing i

My thoughts...Firstly, as always I'd like to express my honest gratitude for all the comments I've received and as well, very important to know for me were about school/courses informations. I don't care if you read this or not but- thank you very much!I would like to state how community flow is really important for me. No, not only for me but to many people. Just many people aren't aware of this.I think the interactions between the artist and watchers - and whole community relationships thing - is one of the most vital parts that our creations exist. Writers have fans, travelers, artists, illustrators, companies, fashion bloggers etc. and so on. You may call it as a "fanbase", thus I prefer to not call because "fans" and "fanbase" has a lot of negative stereotypes and image about blindly screaming "minors". I'd prefer to name differently, because I do not view them as minors. Absolutely. I view them as an every worthy human on equal worth as the creator and that's a fact. They are just guests to

I'm very excited for this season to unfold, and I hope that all of you are avoiding all the spoilers and commercials like you should be!Next week, my first episode of season 3 airs, "Too Many Pinkie Pies."
