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!
