The 24 -year-old said: “I was marching in the mountains go looking for nice sceneries for my travelling photography when out of nowhere I saw this wonderful little creature.” While the animal was almost completely camouflaged by the wintery background, the photographer “re saying it” built no attempt to hide and even’ posed’ for some mountain pictures.

But Nordsveen got more than portraits from its own experience: “He came very close to me and we looked at one another straight in the eyes, ” he remembered, “After some times the mother of the child reindeer is out of trees just behind. It walked around for some minutes before running back to its father. It was very magical and a fairy tale moment.”

White reindeer have an uncommon genetic mutation that strips their coat of pigment to allow them to blend into their snowy surrounds. Unlike albinos, they still have dark pigmentation in their eyes and antlers.

It’s not the first time this photographer/ explorer got lucky to convene a rare animal in person. He also got to meet a Lynx and wolves, both also in Northern Norway.
