Rare White Reindeer Calf Poses In Snowy Norway

As if we needed any further reminders that it’s officially the best month of the year and Christmas is coming, a cute little reindeer is here to brighten your day.

The rare white reindeer has been spotted in Northern Norway, after it emerged from the woods with its brown mother.

The calf was pictured in front of a magical snowy background, which it almost faded into because of its unique appearance.

White reindeers have such an appearance because of a genetic mutation which strips their fur of any pigment, although they are not classed as albino.

Photographer Mads Nordsveen, from Oslo, was on a hiking trip with friends when he spotted the white reindeer calf.

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.

It’s estimated that this adorable reindeer would have just been a few months old when the photo was taken, as calves are born in May each year.

Maybe it truly will be a white Christmas after all!
