The female adult red deer, a symbol of beauty (Prov 5:19) and desperate loyalty (Jer 14:5).

Prov 5:19

19a lovely deer, a graceful doe.
May her breasts satisfy you at all times;
may you be intoxicated always by her love.

Jer 14:5

5Even the doe in the field forsakes her newborn fawn
because there is no grass.
