According to Scandinavian traditions, spotting a white reindeer is considered a sign of good luck.

A Norwegian photographer spotted a rare sight while he was hiking with friends. He captured a beautiful photograph of a white reindeer calf in the mountains of northern Norway. Mads Nordsveen, 24, from Oslo, captured the magnificent creature that seemed to almost blend in and disappear against the white snow.

According to the BBC, he said, “He came to me very close and we looked into each other’s eyes. He was very calm when he saw that I did not have bad intentions. He behaved as if he was posing for my photos… he was very curious and funny, like a little explorer.”

Mads shared his incredible photos on his Instagram page. Describing the encounter as “very magical” and a “fairytale moment”.

White reindeer are extremely rare to find, so finding a baby one is probably one of the coolest and rarest encounters with wildlife you could ever have!

People often thing that the white color is due to some sort of albinism, but that isn’t the case. The white color is caused by a genetic condition that saps the pigment from their fur.

People were quick to share their own, rare encounters with white deer — and even a stunning ‘white’ moose encounter!

So if white animals are really signs of good luck, we wish you the very best of it with these awesome, magical photographs!!!
