A rare baby white reindeer was photographed behind a snowy background in Norway, going viral.
Photographer Mads Nordsveen, from Oslo, was on a hiking trip with friends when he spotted the white reindeer calf.
It’s estimated that this adorable reindeer would have just been a few months old, as calves are born in May each year.
The 24-year-old said:
I was walking in the mountains looking for nice landscapes for my travel photography when out of nowhere I saw this wonderful little creature.
The photographer went on to describe the moment he spotted the reindeer:
He came very close to me and we looked at each other straight in the eyes. He was quite relaxed when he saw that I was calm and friendly. It was almost as if he posed for the camera.
He was very curious and fun. Like a little explorer. After some minutes the mother of the baby reindeer came out of trees just behind. It walked around for some minutes before running back to its mother.
It was very magical and a fairytale moment.
