I found Bambi grazing on a lawn in Washington state!
He was surrounded by very watchful adults.
The adults were a bit wary of humans,
but Bambi was pure curiosity!
This adult had a massive yet cleanly healed scar that transversed her right side and formed a y flap crossing over her shoulder. This was a major injury that cut through lots of muscle. I wonder if a good samaritan veterinarian stitched her up?
Cheers to you from the peaceful, and very dear-deer~

Happy you like them & thank you!
Great shots! They look bigger than our Eastern not so dear deer! 🙂
Happy you enjoyed & thanks for stopping by~
Peaceful ineed … and hoping for continued safe travels.
Thank you Frank and cheers to you my friend~
Wonderful photos, they are such beautiful animals! ❤️🙏🏻
Yes they are, and peaceful and graceful too. <3
I’m glad someone cared for her injuries. That’s what important. Nice pictures.
I respect you for thinking caring for deer is important. Thank you Darnell.
What I remember most about my trips to Washington state were the cherry blossoms, waterfalls and deer — and everything was so lush and green. The baby deer were very curious, but the parents were very cautious. Brings back memories.
Yep, the fauns haven’t had enough experience with humans yet to learn to mistrust us.
You just made my day. Thank you. I’m so happy the deer healed and is fine. Someone had to have helped her with a wound that serious. <3
Awwww, happy day my friend. I heard rumors about a person who feeds and supports the deer when they give birth, so my guess goes in that direction.

Hugs to you sweet friend~
very beautiful photos, thank you for sharing.
Thank you more for appreciating the dear ones <3
<3 <3 <3
Crystal clear photos…I can even see the grizzle on the hairs!
Thank you & cheers too!
I love dear and get quite excited when I see them on the lawns in Medicine Hat, Alberta. A common sight there.
Oh, lucky you! I love them too, but they are not common at all where I live because the coyote packs scare them away. We are heading to Manitoba soon and I hope to see more of them.
Have a great trip to Manitoba! I’m sure you will see some deer there.
I hope so, and polar bears and belugas, and maybe snowy owls too! Hoping…..
Wonderful shots, as always.
Ahh, so appreciated.! Thank you.
So beautiful. How wonderful that someone helped heal her wound.🙏🏻
Yes. Despite all the terribly bad news, the good news is, good people do so much good, every day, without anyone noticing.
So adorable, people are nice. great pictures.
Most people in this world are kind <3
Gladly and hopefully.:-)
When we lived in the country and had 75 acres full of wildlife and fish, watching the deer was a favorite thing to do. I have tons of pictures – it was fun to see the does, bucks and fawns all getting along, at least most of the year 🙂
That is a big piece of property and I can well imagine how much the wildlife meant to you. Cheers to you & thanks for stopping by~
Aren’t they lovely?
Unfortunately, we found a dead fawn [very likely hit by a car] on our property last night. I did not bury it, though, but just took it out of our sight and left it there in the open, hoping that our vultures will take care of it.
Ahhh, that is sad. Deers are lovely, graceful creatures. The very necessary and helpful vultures will be grateful you left this for them.
The vultures are already taking care of it.
You helped them, and they help you.
It looks like the deer feel right at home around your yard. As sweet as they are, they can be quite a nuisance when they get into your garden. Have a great day, Cindy!
Thank you Peter & cheers to you my friend~
These shots are incredible, so intimate. Beautiful…
Awwww, touched. Thank you very much.
Of course! 🙂
Deer that live close to town have a very hard time. You got some nice closeups here.
Yes. They get hit by cars and harrassed.
They are so lovely. 🙂
They’re so adorable! Thank you for sharing these dear deer with us Cindy! 🙂💖 xxx
Your comment makes me smile. Thank you more for appreciating these dears.
What a lovely animal Cindy. Our young deer have big spots on them.
This is an older fawn, who has lost his spots. Those newborn vulnerable fawn who still have their spots….They are so precious.
It seems impossible to me, to not love all of them.
They have the most compelling eyes….
Big brown Bambi eyes <3
just what I needed after a hectic day, your post and the deer, bliss!!! thank you my dear…I so
Ohh, lots of lots of love to you sweet friend, and thank you so much too <3
Dear are beautiful creatures, as shown in your amazing photos, but I wish they would stay out of my flower beds.
I know! I spend so much time gardening and growing things. And I watch so many critters consume so much of what I grow here at The Holler. I shop at the grocery store. They shop at The Holler. Laughing….more.
It’s all good. Imagine if they weren’t here. They bug me sometimes, but it would be so much worse if someone killed them because they belong here.
Oh, I would hate for someone to kill them. I just wish they’d find someone else’s garden to munch on.
I hear you & I understand <3
Oh what adorable babies! 🦌💕
Yes. Makes me smile. Just so sweet <3
A beauty of animals. All tenderness their looks. The photos, of the best. And so close to you. You are lucky to enjoy them.
I am so much more happy that you SEE the beauty of animals and the tenderness in their looks. Thank you <3
You are welcome
LOVE!!!! Deer are dear, and so are you! xoxo
And so R U! <3 to U Resa. Lots of it <3
Too cute for words
Yep. That is exactly what they are. Thank you for seeing them.
Cindy, once again, thank you!

Aww, so cute! A couple days ago we found a baby deer in one of our blackberry bushes. He was sleeping, but still SO adorable!
Oh yes, sooo adorable! I would love to see this. Sometimes mama leaves them sleeping quietly away from her, so she can graze and keep them safe. They are beautiful creatures.
Curious and unbelievable too. :-)) Michael
They are amazing creatures <3
It does seem Bambi has released itself from being imprisoned in a book, it wants to know first hand why we all love her so much. I guess the mystery is solved now, it’s time for it to go to the comforts of the pages of the book and delight generations of sweet little kids forever! 🙂
Awww, my sweet friend, you just made my <3 smile! She is surprised we love her, but every child who ever read about her does, and at least in the pages of the book, she is safe forever. Love to you <3
They are beautiful! 😍😍😍
They are such stunning creatures <3
I love the level of detail you were able to get with your photos! Deer are regular visitors at my place. I refer to them as DWA (Deer with Attitude). They just look up from eating the hostas and stare us down: Yeah, I’m eating your hostas. You wanna make sumthin’ of it? Ah well, they were here first.
Laughing, a lot….I watched them eating someone’s vegetable garden. I specifically said, quite clearly, several times, “You are not supposed to do that!” It had the exact effect you would imagine. They are funny creatures. They seemed more nervous when I silently took their photos, then when I told them to stop eating the veggies. So here’s what I’m thinking. When you next see them eating your hostas, creep oh so slowly, and oh so stilly, and just stand there, perfectly still, preferably with a camera, looking at them intently. I think it will unnerve them, and at least slow down the hosta consumption….a bit.
They are such lovely creatures in all ways….
OMG! Grazing on a lawn! No respect!!
The trick is to keep them on the lawn and out of the vegetables. They were really going to town on the vegetable….
How wonderful,to have so much wildlife on your doorstep. Thanks for sharing Cindy.
Thank you more for appreciating the creatures <3

Very dear and special. 🙂
Gosh, so wonderful to hear from you! Love to you <3
I am hanging in here! 🙂
Good. I hope you are well <3
was she injured during te hunting season
I don’t know. It could be that, or maybe, she was hit by a car.
Very pretty pictures. 🙂
Beautiful … I love these pics … see, human and animal can co-exist … just need to take the guns out of man’s hands. Thank you for sharing these gorgeous pics!
Yep. I am with you 100% sister <3
Baby animals are super cute, this one is no exception!
Yes, and his insatiable curiosity makes him even more appealing.
Gorgeous! (And thanks to the kind vet.)
Good people doing kind things everyday <3
They seem to be such delicate and graceful creatures, all healthy with wet noses.
Yes, delicate, graceful, and peaceful with soulful eyes <3
Ahhhh, <3 my friends who <3 deer!
Very nice Cindy. Glad someone helped that Deer and mended his wound.
Grazie Gary. There are good people doing good things everyday in this world of ours.
danke für die schönen Bilder, wünsche schönen Start ins lange Wochenende, Klaus
Vielen dank mein lieber Freund und frohe Wochenende Klaus <3
alles Gute für die Zeit
einfach schöne Pfingsttage wünsche ich
Vielen dank mein lieber Freund <3
We live in a city but have a stream behind our house. The deer are ALWAYS there. I wish I could capture such wonderful shots!
We used to live in a house like that. It’s wonderful isn’t it! <3
It really is, our first ‘visitors’ when we moved in were a few deer who startled the jeebers out of me when I was unloading groceries my first night there. I think they were hoping to be invited in for dinner!
Laughing…..Just watch out for the peaceful grazers in rutting season…. Elk are incredible and dangerous during rut, but then so are elephants…I have gotten in the midst of both. You just definitely want to avoid being in between a male and the object of their affection…. Laughing more~
I’m fairly certain I can avoid the Elk and the Elephants where I live!!!! 😂
Cindy, I’m sure you can hear the universal ohhs and ahhs from your readers of this post – the deer look so gorgeous and cute!
Your kindness touches my <3 Annika. Grazie Mille~
Beautiful photos 💜
Muchas gracias <3
I <3 people who <3 deer!
Dear deer grazing green grass in fresh fields. 🙂
Not much is sweeter <3
They are so cute.
Merci beaucoup mon ami <3
De rien. 😊
Such beautiful creatures. How can anyone kill them?
For fun? I don’t want to understand. You can have all the fun with camera and not hurt any creature.
So lovely! Hope they are safe on the roads there.
Thanks my friend and yes, it is a risk.
Very happy you think so & cheers~
Aw, the poor dear! I wonder if she tangled with an auto or a wild critter? We’re all glad you had a camera with you to capture these beautiful animals, Cindy!
I am so much more glad you love them and thank you Debbie <3
God’s gentle, shy, beautiful creatures 🦌……😊
Love to you cuz. Always.
Bambi is so cute… Poor mother dear, has been hurt so severe…
I love your poem, and your sensitivity.
glad she was not badly or mortally wounded
Yes. Thank you.
Wonders of Nature. Enjoy your travels
Thank you and happy you stopped by~
Wonderful photos, Cindy!
I am very pleased you enjoyed. Thank you Jennie.
You’re welcome, Cindy!
Living in the woods, with plenty of white-tail deer, I just see our dallies and purple coneflowers getting dead-headed each morning by the local deer grazing along the driveway. – Oscar
I know, it is the same here with creatures eating my vegetables, but there is also the compensatory joy of their wild presence <3
This is adorable!
They are just that! Thank you & cheers~
🙂 Same to you!
Beautiful captures of the Deer 🙂
He is so adorable. Loved this.
I <3 people who <3 deer!
Oh, so cute! 🙂
They are sweet creatures <3
Great shots! Interesting to see how different your deer are from ours in Texas – yours have much thicker coats and coloring is different. At least Bambi’s mom recovered from her injury.
Grazie mille! The colder climate would explain the differences in the coats and yes, some good person helped the deer to survive.
Bambi….she is eating the grass lf the neighbours!
When she started eating the neighbors vegetable garden, I had words with her, but she didn’t seem to speak English…..
I’m crazy about all animals, but deer have to be one of my absolute favorites. Thanks for sharing your beautiful photographs!
Thank you Susan for all the good you do everyday on behalf of all creatures great and small <3
Thanks, Cindy! You are so incredibly cool! If it were not for you, and your consistent feedback to my posts, I probably would not be still posting. Bless you for your encouragement and for inspiring everyone you touch with your beautiful photography and inspirations. Namaste.
Oh, I would miss you and your posts terribly if you stopped blogging! You are doing such important work with your blog. Please do not stop! Hugs & all the best to you <3 <3
I love watching deer. I know that a lot of people hate them because they nibble on their gardens, but seeing a deer always lifts my spirit.
They lift my spirits too. They are graceful, peaceful and curious creatures.
Stunning pictures of some stunning creatures!
So kind and lovely to meet you. Your blog is wonderful!
So gorgeous n cute 💕🙈
So nice to meet you Saania & thank you <3
Nice to meet you too! My absolute pleasure, how are you doing? 🤗💞
All is well here & cheers to you <3
Beautiful shots! And a great eye to notice that injury mark!!
Pretty serious, but now completely healed.
A most enjoyable visit with the dear deer, Cindy. I’ve never seen a deer with a scar, how fortunate for the deer to have been taken care of. Great photos and a joy to be here.
Awwww, so happy yous stopped by my friend and have a wonderful weekend <3
So cute! Lovely photos.
Thanks much & cheers to you~
Aren’t they beautiful? When we lived in the country, I’d see them all the time. Yet every single time was like opening a gift. Always gasps and smiles and if I wasn’t on the way to work, I could sit and watch them for a while. Besides that scar, they look healthy too. What a blessing have them be part of your day. x K
I <3 people who <3 deer, like you dear <3 Be well my friend.
Such gorgeous creatures, Cindy.
Ahhh, happy you like them Rob & cheers my friend <3
How adorable! 😁

My Featured Blogger this week is Cindy Knoke, a former psychotherapist who packed everything up and moved to a rural (think “wild”) location she calls “The Holler.”
Cindy now traipses local and foreign vistas, taking spectacular photos of better adapted creatures than many of her former clients, as well as images of breathtaking vistas and charming towns. She regularly posts these online, along with her reveries and thoughtful insights. (There is quite a collection of her work at National Geographic’s Your Shot site, as well.)
I’m hardly the first person to recommend Cindy (she has a BIG following), but I gladly add my voice to the list!
Such a thoughtful, kind and wonderful gift from you Mitch. I am deeply touched. I have already met some of your friends who have stopped over to say Hello. You, are they, are a blessing to me. Thank you my friend & be well <3
Interesting to see how the one who had been badly injured was so protective of the innocent and inexperienced one. I’ve seen a few parallels to that situation in my own life…
Oh, I didn’t think of this, but now that you mention it, yes. It makes perfect sense. Thank you & lovely to meet you <3
These are GREAT images.
Mitch Teemly @ https://mitchteemley.com/2019/06/26/dear/ directed his readers to your site. It’s amazing work!! Deer are such an endearing animal; so peaceful. When I see them here, it just reminds me – there is peace. Thanks so much!
So incredible of Mitch to do this! I am truly touched by his kindness, and yours for stopping by and sharing such thoughtful comments with you. Bless you & Bless Mitch <3
On this humid bustling day, these pictures still the world.
It is a joy to find your blog. My thanks to Mr. Teemley for
the lead and to you for sharing the living of your dream.
God Bless Mitch & lovely to meet you! Thank you for stopping by and saying hello <3
They posed for you. 🙂
Bonjour ou bonsoir mon Amie et belle CINDY Tes images sont remarquables
Chaque jour, je vois défiler le temps
devant moi la réalité, derrière moi un passé
Chaque jour, je fais les mêmes gestes
Les mêmes mouvements
Assis devant un café, je viens te retrouver
L’ordinateur est devenu mon ami avec lui
je t’offre un peu de joie un peu de bonheur
et toute l’amitié que j’ai au fond du cœur
Profite bien et ai pleinement conscience du bonheur de vivre
Je te souhaite un bonne fin de semaine
Merci beaucoup mon ami.
Gorgeous photos. I feel in love with every flower.
I love your kind words <3
Such perfect photos of a moment of peace and tranquility. It does hurt my heart to know they are in danger every moment. I hope whoever patched that sweet fellow up knows how much it was appreciated. I saw deer wandering yards in Boulder, CO several years ago. They almost looked like statues resting on the lawns. Thanks for sharing this lovely family moment.
I know how you feel. <3
There are so many kind people doing good stuff everyday, like the veterinarian or tech, who saved this deer.
I think the media needs to balance horribleness with beauty, otherwise we will all be frozen by helplessness.
I agree. I don’t watch the news much anymore. I will record it and watch in fast forward with the sound off till I get to something good or relevant. There are lots of people doing good but they don’t make the news. Balance ‘is’ the keyword as you said.
