These amazing pictures were captured by nature photographer Lassi Rautiainen, 56, in the wilds of northern Finland.

Wolves were once extinct in Sweden but are now recovering, still there are just about 400-500 wolves in Sweden. The Grey Wolf in Scandinavia is the largest member of its family, with males averaging 50 kg, and females 40 kg.

Its winter fur is long and bushy, and is usually mottled gray/yellowish in color. The Grey Wolf is one of the world’s most well researched animals, with probably more books written about it than any other wildlife species.

Bears can be found in the Northern two thirds of Sweden. Which means from Dalarna/Gävleborg and all the way up to the North.

Researchers have shown that Central Sweden with Dalarna, Gävleborg and Jämtland are the most densely populated areas with Bears in Sweden. Perhaps even in Europe! Bears are shy, peaceful and very difficult to see in the wild so there is no need to worry.

Every spring a pair of golden eagles nests, pairs, and regularly feeds within sight of Lassi Rautiainen’s golden eagle hide close to Oulanka National park in Kuusamo. You may also see wolverines, Siberian jays, Siberian tits, black woodpeckers, and other winter birds there.
