Woo, if these photographs of bear cubs dancing in Finland forest isn’t one of the highest wildlife’s magical moments, then I don’t know what is!
Because, physical education teacher, Valtteri Mulkahainen, from Sotkamo, Finland, has shot his country’s best wildlife photos – including one evening the part-time photographer got a view of baby bears circling and dancing – and he didn’t miss the chance of not capturing it!
Valtteri Saw The Adorable Bear Cubs Playing Around From Fifty Meters Afar:
While exploring the Finnish taiga around the town of Martinselkonen, the man stumbled upon a bear coming into an opening with a few small cubs who were pretty much behaving like toddlers.
Yeah, I see that – the small baby cubs hurling around in a friendly fight that soon shifted into a delightful bear-back-swing (oh, I can bear that).
The Viral Candy interviewed Valtteri Mulkahainen related to his astonishing hobby, and he said, “I really like to take pictures, for me it’s a rest after work. When I go to the forest with a camera, I rest and recover. I see little children in little bears. They play like little children. I don’t have grandchildren yet, which is why they are so dear to me, and I get great pleasure photographing cubs.”
If you are a citizen of Finland except for the Aland islands, the chances of bumping into a bear are pretty much high. Most of them live in the eastern part of the country and Lapland, but natives regularly see these noble creatures in the southern and western areas as well.
And over the years, bears have triumphantly proven us that they are agile and robust. They use their forelegs very energetically for running and hunting, plus they are great swimmers too. In short, they’re the complete package of well-being.
Anyway, the fact that Valtteri managed to get such close shots of the bear and bear cubs is really fascinating. Because bears will typically try to evade humans as expertly as they can, and that’s why humans rarely see them in the wild since these creatures almost always run immediately after detecting our presence.
