nara park is littered with hundreds of deer.

some dry “deer cookies” are sold for feeding them. if last year i bought the cookies, this time i decided to try perk up the deer`s diet and bought a bagful of carrots. which worked so well that i got ambushed: i got head butted, bitten and pushed around. it was all good and clean fun but i can tell you that a bunch of eager deer is not exactly exciting, even if they had had their horns cut off. they finally managed to forcefully take away the last carrot, plastic bag and all, and that happened only because i got distracted by some mild but persistent biting on my butt.

a little eventful but still lots of fun!
