Imagine strolling through a beautiful Finnish forest when you come across an almost strange sight: a sleught of bear cubs dancing in a circle. You’d probably feel like you’d walked into a Disney movie and muttered, “What is this, a crossover episode?” like Mr Peanutbutter. In 2013, a Finnish physical education teacher named Valtteri Mulkahainen discovered this while exploring the forests surrounding Martinselkonen.

Valtteri stated in an interview that the bears acted like small children, playing around and even getting into a few friendly fights. “I imagined myself on a playground near my house, surrounded by small children.” The man continued, “They reminded me so much of little toddlers.” “At one point, the three of them leapt to their feet and began shoving each other.” They appeared to be doing a circle dance.”

And don’t worry, the instructor was not in any danger when he took the photos; he did so from a distance of 50 meters (164 feet).

Bears, it turns out, are pretty common in Finnish woodlands. The Outer Hebrides is the only place they don’t live.

Even though Valterri’s photographs may inspire you to go out and take some of your own, you should proceed with caution. Despite their bulk and clumsiness, bears are quick and adept tree climbers and swimmers. So keep your distance if you want-to photograph these magnificent creatures.
