A photographer in Norway has snapped a rare white reindeer, who almost disappears into the snowy background. Just in time for Christmas, eh? According to photographer Mads Nordsveen, from Oslo, the adorable little reindeer wasn't shy and was happy to pose for some photos.
Mads was out hiking with some pals when they spotted the rare animal, which wasn't in the least bit scared and went over for a closer look at the group.
Twenty-four-year-old Mads 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
"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 fairy tale moment. "Maybe one day we'll meet again."
