The deer of Nara park have an idyllic life – mischievously pestering adoring tourists for their packed lunches and basking amongst beautiful temples, shrines and gardens. They also strike poses for the occasional portrait – These are the last of my deer photos taken in Nara. See the others here.
In a recent posts I have featured a few deer pictures from Nara park – scerene and scenic. Here are some more, frolicking and fawning amidst stoic temples and ancient streams.
