    Having never been to Japan, I am assuming this is a composite....Very funny in any event.

    Thanks for your comments!
    Actually nothing is fake in this shot - though I do get a lot of "how did you put that deer there?" :) I was going to take the picture of the torii (portal) with the stone lantern on the side when I noticed that a deer (one of many on the island) was coming my way, so I waited until he entered the frame and then took this shot. It was just plain luck that he decided to look in the "right" direction :)
