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
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
Thank you + kiriban + zoo news + zoo PHOTOSHi!
At first, thank you for supporting Allerlei and her photo - not only her photo will be included in a calendar, but she won, her photo had by far the most "likes"! thank you for helphig her - the calendar with her shot will be sold by ZOO Bratislava and the money will go to the construction of brand new wolf exhibit the ZOO is probably a bit poor, so it needs to get all the money first before it starts building. So such calendar might be a nice help! I can not wait - wolves now have very small, old cage, because the ZOO got them by mistake and had no proper place for housing them
At second, I announce a new kiriban - it is 922 222 and it is quite close. No chance to get 1 milion pageviews this year, but you have an apportunity to win a feature just catch it and send me a printscreen via note no feature for porn or animal cruelty
At third, there are some big changes in ZOO Brno - right now, it is building an exhibit for Komodo dragons! just
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
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!
:-( and ZOO animals - PHOTOSHello,
I hate that thesis SO much... I feel like total idiot, I somehow can not write it. Why?!
It is my the last attempt to complete it, if I do not finish it properly, I totally lose my chance to get my second Master degree. Which would be pretty embarassing, because not only I already have all the credits I need, I even passed the graduation exams! After so much work, it would be stupid to end without the title just because of inability to write stupid 80 pages.
Also, I wish USA a lucky hand when it comes to voting! It might be interesting, I will definitely watch US elections interesting material for a student of political science. I do not mind to share my opinion - I would vote for Obama. But I do not feel like advocating my opinion, I have no problem with those whose attitude is different
The first few photobooks have been already shipped!
P.S.: still exercising, still riding a bike (two days, then a pause), still eating 5x a day. I have problems with drinkin
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.
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
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
Art-thief + small cats - PHOTOS!Hi people!
Yup, after long time, there is another stealing guy in this site.
He posts many famous google photos, clearly claiming them as his own. His last submission was a red fox, which is in fact a very famous National Geographic photo, which is posted by thieves very often. This guy says it was him who took the photo and he was only 30 cm far from this animal. What a liar.
This guy does NOT steal my photos, he steals photos of other authors.
So please, report him. I think his gallery is totally crowded with stolen shots, so if you know the originals, report him too, please.
And please, just report, no rude words for him. Thanks!
I hate those liars so much, especially when they think that blocking you would save their butt.

Is anybody here? + news + ZOO animals - PHOTOS.Hi!
Ok, ok, ok, I am almost scared - what happaned? It seems that this site is totally empty for last week!
I wonder what caused this: Sandy? Or do Americans have some Halloween holiday so they are not online? Or... is there some secret and slow Zombie attack?
Of course dA decided to use this time to announce free shipping usually they do it before Christmas and I usually get pretty nice money from it. This time I got just few dolars, so I hope dA will repeat the action - just before X-mas as they did the last year. Because this site really seems to be empty now! as a response to a free shipping, I released Free calendar for 2013 - I think I have never had so few faves, views and downloads on it. What a pity, what a bad time
I know about Sandy, it was covered by Czech media a lot
Poor people, I hope everything will be fixed as soon as possible. I did not know it affected so many people
You also know I asked you to vote for Allerlei's photo - thank you
FREE SHIPPING - just today! + kiribaHi!
At first kiriban - catch my 933 333 pageviews to win a feature just send me printscreen via note, please
Oh sorry, last days you had a big break from my journals, so this time I would annoy you with the third one in a row, sorry
Just and ONLY today, DA has a free shipping offer!
I believe it is the last chance to order something from DA with free shipping this year... My guess is that they offer it just because last time there were elections and Sandy, so nobody was online.
So I am commercial again, announcing my staff once again (sorry, not much money, advertising is needed )

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
My other sister also joined dA! :DHeyy my watchers!
Yeah, my other sister also joined dA today! ^^ She is one year younger than my sister PixieCold She wants to become a children's-book illustrator/author some day and she has a totally different style than mine! ^^ But it is really cute, you should totally have a look and give her some love! (She has only one picture uploaded so far )
Here is her account: :iconSarinArts:
Veeeeeery important question to all my watchers!!!Sooo, I have a very very very important question to you all!!
Me and my sister :iconPixieCold: are thinking about putting our accounts together. So her and her watchers would merge into my account. (We would also rename this account, something like a mix between our both names: sanguisGelidus and PixieCold )
There are several reasons behind this: First, I will go to another country in the end of this year (probably Australia or USA...) and will not be able to post anything on this account for 2!! years.. This is a lot of time and I don't want this account to rust.. ^^ So my sister could post her works in this time till I will return! And she would also post journals about me, what I am doing and everything!
The second reason is, that we think it would be quite interesting, since we never heard of something like that before (sister and brother having the same account). As I am mainly a digital artist and she is a traditional + photography artist we would appeal to a broader rang

PLEASE READ! THERE IS AN ART STEALER D': :Edit:EDIT: She now has posted a journal saying she's sad no one believes her and she wants to prove it and she's saying she posted them on Twitter first or something but it must of "broke" and that's when they got stolen, yeah right, she can't even talk properly, she's probably a sad 11 year old who gets no attention at all
This girl Talinda2 has been stealing people's Twilight work, they are different techniques and styles, she only joined yesterday and she already has 11 very good deviations (which are all not hers) On the one, she just cropped it so the artist's signature was gone, which is so damn obvious -_- If you go here: http://talinda2.deviantart.com/art/Edward-314891251 (the stolen one) then here: http://xmadlyinlovex.deviantart.com/#/d1tljr0 (the real one) you'll see what I mean, it's funny how it looks the exact same and it's cut off at the point the signature ends.. interesting right? And the real artist has been here for 5 years so how could she have copied from this othe

So I saw Breaking Dawn Part 2 at 10pm on Nov 15......and let me tell you... from a movie standpoint, not just a twilight standpoint...
...it was excellent.
To all Twilight fans...
...you will laugh, cry (like the girl in the back row hysterically sobbing), cheer, and beg for just a few more minutes of film.
Of all the movies, this was the most successful. It was well organized, beautifully designed, and cleverly twisted. Your mind will be blown and your heart will swell.
I have never been so pleased with a Twilight film, and director Bill Condon was capable of bringing so much emotion and reality to the screen. It rekindled my burning passion for the series, and reminded me of the unique beauty that the Twilight Saga holds. That man deserves one hell of a slow clap.
Just... just watch it...
And expect more twi-comics in the near future. Winter break is approaching...
P.S. I can't sleep. Too much Twi. Clearly I'm mentally corrupt.
P.P.S. I stopped breathing after four of my favourite characters died. Yeah. Now you HAVE to watch i
