...probably not; although these deer wandered around the Tiger Temple seemingly unafraid of either the people or the tigers. Many of the younger tigers were born here; they seem as playful as kittens and quite attached to their monks.
I was also interested in the many volunteers at the temple so I found this Link

this is very nice and attractive snapshot with the deer to approch so close to the Tiger temple,wandering what about her life. Fantastic the scenery with the high and dense trees to makes the image so beautiful.

A lovely composition and a lovely atmosphere which really reminds that of a biblical Eden. I like the fine combination of the warm brown earth with the lush green of the trees and surely that deer is so cute!
Interesting note, I didn't know about this tiger temple.

a very nice composition here. Like the deer playing in this beautiful jungle. The red soil is also very attracting. Great light and depth. Excellent shot. Tfs.

Interesting view with animal and trees, well managed, brightness and colors are very nice, just a detail with the deer maybe too in the corner of the photo, maybe ...

Another gem from your far flung world travels.
The young deer does seem less timid than the ones we see in the U.S.
The lush tropical green contrast beautifully with the soft blue sky.

Beautiful shot, the deer is looking very intensely and cariously to the right at something. As if wondering if she should go there or not. Beautiful and rich colors, especially on the trees and the earth tone. It is a very cute shot. Thanks.

Another nice picture from the Tiger temple. You woudn't imagine to have deers roaming about in the tiger park...but that shows how the wild cats have been held here.
Regarding your response to my earlier crtq about the poaching connection, the fact which has come out is very recent & there's a distinct connection found between here & Laos through to China!

A nice composition to show the deer's hesitation (maybe).. I like where the deer is placed in the framing n its nice color harmony with the soil.. beautiful trees as well.. thanks for sharing.
Best regards, Atousa
