Real-Life “Fairy Forests” do exist and 21-year-old wildlife photographer Ossi Saarinen makes sure we get to experience their intrinsic beauty. Ossi is Finnish and all the wildlife photography you’re going to see below is from Finland and we warn you, it’s going to make you visit Finland soon! The Finnish forests do really have all the makings of the “fairy forests” we get to see in movies or read about in fables and Ossi makes sure the whole world discovers these beautiful locations and their wildlife.
Ossi Saarinen has more than 181,000 followers on Instagram as we speak and his art really does speak for itself. You might not know much about Finland, apart from the cold and the forests. Well, Ossi depicts it for you and you’re going to love it. It’s no easy work to wait on foxes, otters or bears to appear and stand still, in the same place for hours, regardless of rain, cold, mosquitos and the list can go on. Choosing the right spot to wait and understanding the animals’ behaviour and cute side is also an art in itself and this really young 21-year-old wildlife photographer from Finland seems to be pretty good at it. The results are stunning and he’s making quite a portfolio. Moreover, he promotes his country as being home to some of the most intense, wonderful, glorious fairy forests in the world. Yes, fairy forests do exist!
