It cracked in the undergrowth. Through the branches I saw the reindeer and crouched down so that it was not frightened. It crossed this gravel path in just a short distance from me. Either it did not notice me or it had judged me as harmless. The Swedish reindeers belong to the Sami people and are not really wild, but a little bit shy. Especially when they meet people who are on foot. Strangely, they find encounters with cars not dangerous and often you meet them in large groups on the roads.

Dear Peter, this is good example of animal/human cohabitation even tough they're semi-ferral, it looks like a young male in good condition at the end of summer season I think he eats a lot to prepare the future colder season where it must scractch the ice and snow to find lichens. High resolution, good pov you were prompt to click, good view of the conifer forest, all the best, good afternoon

He had judged you as harmless, Peter.
An incredible encounter, in wild nature and looks confident when you had been crosing HIS natural habitat, not the opposite, as we tend to think.
A beautiful capture, full of majestic appearence.

Wow! What a shot! You were, for sure, in the right time at the right place for taking this unique scene. The reindeer looks here amazing and I'm sure you must be proud of having such a great image in your gallery. TFS.
