Mads Nordsveen is a 24-year-old man from Oslo, Norway. Not that long ago he decided to go out for a hike with some friends through the Norwegian wilderness. Mads is a photographer, so he often does lots of research and planning before choosing a location to hike through and photograph. According to him, though, "you can not plan magical moments" — like the one he managed to photograph recently. While Mads was hiking, something small caught his eye in the snow: a white reindeer calf.


Speaking with The Insider, Mads detailed how he almost forgot to take a picture because he was so caught off guard by the reindeer and the way it seemed to be as curious about Mads as he was about it.

"It was a very special moment, felt so magical. We looked straight into each other's eyes. I was actually so stunned that it took some seconds before I got reminded by my photographer instinct to grab the camera and save the moment forever!"

One of the reasons Mads was so excited is because white reindeer, particularly calves, are a very rare sighting. Also, the indigenous people of the area believe that white reindeer bring joy. It certainly didn't hurt that the little deer seemed fully aware of how gorgeous it was and seemed to "pose" while Mads took photos.

He posted some of his favorites on Instagram, and it's easy to see why this beautiful baby was such a big hit.


The reindeer's popularity spread to Twitter, where people oohed and aahed over it and shared their concern for its continued well-being.










Mads explained that he did not approach the little deer. Instead, he stayed still and quiet and eventually the curious calf made its way over to him. So there you go! Calm, cool and collected win the day again. Congrats on getting such breathtaking shots, Mads!

Believe it or not, Canadians don't live in igloos or freeze to death all year round. If you go to Germany, it's highly unlikely that every German you meet will be cold and uninviting. Hop over to the United Kingdom and you're not going to run into tons of people with terrible teeth and bad hygeine.

These are called stereotypes, my friends, and it's best you leave them at the door. People were more than willing to strike down some stereotypes about the countries they know and love after Redditor HelloThere577 asked the online community,

"What are some false stereotypes about your country?"
