Feature No. 5: More than cats-My 2013 favorites

Journal Entry: Sat Dec 14, 2013, 9:11 PM
It's that time of the year again where we all tend to take stock of the past year.
Thanks to lucky circumstances I had a three months' break in the summer between jobs. I took that opportunity to go on an extended trip through Europe.
I would like to dedicate this to three remarkable lady artists I was fortunate enough to meet on this journey. You know who you are.

The images below prominently feature animals, but I have included other genres of photography. These are simply my favorite shots of 2013.

Random Notes

4 June, 2012:
It's been one year ago today that I submitted my first photograph. I am thoroughly enjoying my activities here, and I am particularly glad about discovering great artwork. Although I don't have the time anymore to respond to each and every favorite, I am very grateful to all of you, and I'm trying to at least reply to all your comments.

28 September, 2012:

20,000+ favorites since I posted my first photograph back in June of 2011! A good reason to be happy and to celebrate. I would like to thank all of my watchers and friends here on dA for their continued interest and support.

15 January, 2013:

Now here's a mystery: I have a photo in my gallery that is entitled "Two Jaguars in Love" Two jaguars in love by NB-PhotoArt that, as of yesterday, had accumulated 227 favorites and had been downloaded 78 times. Today I got notified that, after a seemingly long time, this photo has attracted another favorite, so the count went up to 228. However, at the same time the download count increased to 203!!! Assuming that dA's counting procedures work properly, that suggests that 125 people downloaded my photograph, but only 1 (one) of them picked this as a favorite. Isn't that odd???
I would completely understand that blatant discrepancy if this was some kind of (semi-)pornographic shot, because in that case, who would want to admit to the fact that they picked this as a favorite (for everyone else out there to verify). But hey, this is just wildlife photography. Maybe someone can enlighten me??!!
