And they’re supremely important to the Arctic ecosystem as a source of food and livelihood for local people, and because of their power reshape vegetation by grazing.

Mads Nordsveen, 24, is the Oslo-based photographer who said he was surprised to happen upon the snowy white reindeer, even though he’s a pro at snapping up magical moments in the great outdoors across Norway.

“It was very magical and a fairy tale moment! We looked straight into each others 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,” Nordsveen told TIME in an e-mail.

Britain set to be hit by icy cold snap starting TONIGHT as temperatures plunge to -8C with some parts of the country set for TWO INCHES of snow

Britain set to be hit by icy cold snap starting TONIGHT as temperatures plunge to -8C with some parts of the country set for TWO INCHES of snow The Met Office has put in place a yellow weather warning for ice in northern England and Scotland, and offered guidance to drivers about possible 'hazardous' conditions tomorrow morning. The remnants of Storm Etienne are heading across the Atlantic at the moment and is set to bring heavy rain and two inches of snow will accumulate in certain parts of northern England and Wales by Tuesday night. The peaks of the Pennines are expected to see some snow as is Snowdonia in North Wales, the Peak District and parts of the Southern Uplands in Scotland.

Reindeer : Reindeer , (Rangifer tarandus), species of deer (family Cervidae) found in the Arctic tundra and adjacent boreal forests of Greenland, Scandinavia, Russia, Alaska, and Reindeer have been domesticated in Europe. There are two varieties, or ecotypes: tundra reindeer and forest (or woodland).

In the winter , reindeer must dig through the snow to find food. They dig using their antlers and munch on energy-packed lichens called reindeer moss. Calves are able to stand after their first hour of life and within a week they start eating solid food in addition to their mother' s milk.

With its snow-white coat, this reindeer has brought people from all corners of the world to the clear realization that this white reindeer calf is really something to see.

The mammal appears to have been very camera-friendly too. And the way the reindeer’s uncommon white shade appears almost camouflaged in the background blanketed with snow only added to the mystique for people who were charmed by the photo series.
