We Are All Different





We all need friends.

We are all unique in our own way with the exception of identical twins, right?





Our resident Piebald is never seen with the herd of "regular"deer.  I was told that because a Piebald is "different" it is sometimes shunned by the herd...all because their genes are "different".



Do you shun others because they are different?

Seeing the Piebald welcome the hens to browse with her made me smile.  It made me think...
Remember good fences make good neighbors!!

We have a few outcasts here on the farm and I like seeing them banding together in a group trying to fit in. Sweet post, JP. xo

I'm amazed at the wildlife you get around your place. Best I can hope for is a few blackbirds or maybe a robin. (The area I live in is walled around my home and three others so we don't get anything like deer or hedgehogs or anything similar.)

Sometimes if I'm really lucky I spot a fox in the distance as I'm heading out to work.

Jealous? Yes, I am.

Do I shun people who are different? No....but I don't always feel comfortable around them at first.

We adopted 3 ducks from a friend, 1 female and 2 males. They used to go everywhere together until recently. Now one male is by himself most of the time. Once in awhile the other 2 would join him. I feel very sorry for him.

i would never shun that beautiful deer for sure.. i don't shun because they are different but i do stay away from some who are just plain no fun to be around..

Looks like the deer has made the most of a difficult situation. I embrace and search out people different than me. One reason I left my country, one reason I left intellectual Princeton and came West. It has enriched my life.

I dont know anything about deer. For that matter,not much about animals.. but I know that when a dog sees a weaker dog, he will attack it.
Sometimes animals are cruel.
poor deer. Its nice he has some friends.

-what was it that Dr. Doolitle said." people who need people, are the luckiest people in the world."
I think this applies to animals too. We all need friends. xxxx
happy week JP. val

Awww what a sweet little doe. I feel bad for her being shunned because she is different. What a lesson we can all learn from this beauty. Great post.

When driving out through the country, I watch for deer. Lucky you to see them all the time.

Oh, poor deer - she is a beauty, despite being 'different'. I think differences make us unique. Wonderful shots. - Karen

Margaret Adamson said...

Yes everyone need a friend and I am glad to see the Deer has more than one. Great that it comes so near your home and wonderful shots you got. Have a great weekend.

That is so sweet. You got some great photos of these critters getting along together. We could all learn something from that! There are a lot of piebald deer in our area now and I'm wondering why this is happening. Some are almost totally white or albino. Have a great weekend JP.
