A wildlife photographer in Finland has been unveiling his country’s natural beauty for around six years. This is about another truly magical moment that paid off the devotion of his time towards wildlife photography.
Valtteri’s exploration was in the woods by Martinselkonen. He came across a few small cubs in a clearing in the woods.
What he witnessed was wonderful to a point where Valtteri felt that they were kids on a playground in his neighborhood. He has reported that the bear cubs were behaving like children. He watched as the cubs were playing with each other as if they were dancing in a circle.
Valtteri managed to be stationed 50 meters away from this playful event which has a very clear angle of the opening which gave Valtteri the chance of shooting these magical photographs all evening and night.
Bears are quite common in Finland except the Aland Islands. These majestic creatures dwell on the eastern and the southern parts of the country where they have made it their roaming grounds.
The playful behavior of these cubs shows us that the bears are naturally good at using their strong forelegs. It can be seen when they hunt, climb and also swim. Bears are universally strong and efficient in almost all of their daily activities in the wild.
The chance that Valtteri got, to get such clear shots of these cubs and the bear; is a truly rare event. The bears in the wild usually avoid human contact. Their keen senses and their silent movements helps them to move away from danger.
Before the Finnish hunting season of 2019, the estimates of Bears given by the Finnish Natural Resources Institute were between 2020 to 2130.
