Wild bear cubs snapped on camera dancing in a circle, in the heart of the forests of Finland.
Valtteri Mulkahainen from Sotkamo, a physical education teacher has spent most of his leisure time over the last six years engaging in taking photographs related to wildlife in the delicate natural surroundings of Finland. He has captured a lot of eye-catching during the past years. The article is on a very special and a rare scene which he snapped recently. His wonderful snapshots are on the dancing cubs who give us the feeling of a grandeur of a Fairy-tale.
The photographer was exploring the Finnish taiga around the city of Martinselkonen when he came up and moved into a fantasy world akin to Robert Southey’s’ imagination from reality. A mere fifty meters away from him were three little bears, standing up on two legs while playing holding each other and dancing amidst the forest. He was surprised and amazed after seeing the incident. He remained cheated all evening and all night. “The cubs behaved like little children,” Valtteri stated, “They were playing, and even started a few friendly fights. I felt like I was on a playground in front of my house, where small children frolic around. That’s how much they reminded me of little children. It was like they were dancing in a circle.”
Bear mother was nearby the cubs too. Valtteri had to get confirmed that he did not disturb the family of bears too much. As we know bears don’t usually remain in places with the sights of men. Although bears are normally seen in most areas of Finland (except the Åland Islands) it is a best performer in the game hide and seek. Bears will naturally escape silently, as soon as they witness or smell a human being.
An assessment research by the Natural Resources Institute Finland (Luke) reveals that there were about 2,130 to 2,260 before the year 2018, in Finland. Therefore the quota of the amount of bears that can be hunted was marked as 313 for 2019-20 – (Daily Finland) by the government of Finland.
Valtteris’ images have helped a lot to anthropomorphise these commonly frightened animals. Sometimes this scenery made you go back to your childhood which was accompanied by childhood stories and nursery rhymes and songs.
All the best for your effort to keep yourself away from the melodies of Jimmy Kennedy’s ‘A teddy bears first opportunity picnic’ for the rest of the day.
