Czech Republic
Hi, my name's Martina, I live in the Czech Republic and I study Zoology at the Faculty of Science, Charles University in Prague.
I have two, no, wait, already three big passions - watching birds, drawing and now also karate! Haha, what a combo, right? :D
I'm just an amateur, but I try to spend as much time practising as possible, because I wanna get better and better :eager: I have a lot to learn, so if you see something that's off in some of my works, don't hesitate to tell me so I don't repeat that mistake next time :aww:
And thank you for stopping by :)

Current Residence: Prague, Czech republic
Favourite genre of music: soundtracks, classical music, christmas carols, or whatever I like...
Personal Quote:
What can't be achieved by force, can be achieved by even greater force!
Quae nocent, saepe docent.
...... meaning (for those who can't speak latin): What hurts, often instructs.(I really like this one especially since I've taken up karate... it's a great quote, there's a lot of thruth in it :D)

So the spring has come and that means I'm spending a lot of time in the field, near the city of České Budějovice in South Bohemia. The lapwings are displaying and nesting, so I have a lot of work recording their voices and song-flights and watching them make pairs or polygynous bonds, build nests and incubate the eggs... Basically gathering data for my diploma thesis. It's the second year I'm doing this stuff and as I got some experience, it goes much better this season. It looks like I might already have enough data for the thesis. The other thing is that it's going to take a lot of time before I process them and actually write the thesis :)

It's good to be out in the fresh air and watch all the interesting birds return one by one from their wintering sites :) This weekend I found and saw my first nest of a Common Redshank, a critically endengered wader in the Czech Republic. I saw a pair of them dig and build a nest and wrote down the location. Two weeks later my friend thought it was time for them to lay eggs and asked me if I haven't an idea of any nest since I spend so much time watching the birds. I told him I had and navigated him to the spot. And there it was! Not a complete cluth yet, just two fresh eggs. :) I know most of you probably don't care, because you might not be interested in birds or maybe because Redshanks are common in your neck of the woods, but it made me really happy :D
Here, have a look:

And when I'm not watching birds, I'm drawing them. I've already got several new bird pictures finished, but will publish them later. Just so you know I haven't given up on bird art :)

It's incredible how fast time seems to pass by. It feels like yesterday it was winter and tommorow will be summer again. And I haven't done everything I was supposed to (as usual). It's a little frustrating, but at least I can say I'm not bored at all.

And from the karate corner I'd like to say that for the second time I've visited a seminar in Wroclav, in Poland. This time the seminar was lead by the World Chief Instructor of IOGKF, Nakamura-sensei. I've never seen him in person before so I was curious. I found out he's amazing - both as a karateka and as a person. He's very friendly and so the atmosphere of the whole seminar was really great. I love events like this and I'm sure a lot more are coming :)

Ahoj ^^ jen se chci zeptat, jak jsi na tom s kartičkou pro mě ^^;
Nachiii Featured By Owner Apr 20, 2015  Hobbyist General Artist
Ale nééé, já se tak strašně moc omlouvám, úplně jsem zapomněla! Tedy lépe řečeno jsem měla pocit, že už je výměna dávno hotová, protože kartičku už jsem kreslila... a pak jsem ji našla nedodělanou v šuplíku :facepalm:
No a protože už tam ležela nějaký čas, vidím na ní všechny ty mouchy, tak jsem se rozhodla ji raději úplně předělat. Každopádně hotovo, je to také double ACEO. DOufám že se bude líbit a ještě jednou promiň! :worship:…

I love the realistic bird art on your page.  Are you available for commissions?  I need some realistic digital images of birds for a project we are doing.  I don't want to share much on your public page, but if you would email me I would be glad to tell you about it.  Thanks!
