Unfortunately I missed the moment where this family was posing next to the deer is the usual style... and when the small child took a close up with his iphone... although dads casual close up is quite nice. I love how the deer doesn't move and looks completely bored. It might have been a bit about the weather - it was cold and rainy
Nara was pretty interesting. The deer around some of the temples seemed to be statues- not moving at all despite all the human activity, although there was area in further up towards the forest where deers would come running at you when they saw you turn up and if you bought the deer biscuits to feed them you would get mobbed. I didn't feed them- I couldn't cross that Australian native-non-feeding-attitude.
