Dear Deer

2b9c6e470b1d367600e0caaba33c3df8My 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 settings, 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!

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~

  3. Thank you, Mitch for your post. We went to Nara Park (Deer Park) in Japan and a blogger in New York said there is a deer park there.

    Deer are a common sighting around my parts, yet I still enjoy watching them—that is until they start eating my flowers.
