My love is a toy model waiting

There was some rain during morning in Kuusamo. After noon we did some swimming, and then I went for a walk in the forests. There were several little lakes, the path going up and down tiny hills.

I was rather surprised to see a pair of antlers appear behind one such hill. I stopped still. Four reindeer appeared walking towards me on the path, ten meters away, two adults and two calves. I took some photographs. One of the adults had big antlers, and looked very carefully at me. Then they got off the path and walked away to the forest.

The photograph was taken at Särkänniemi on July 3rd.
