Animal Tracks on the Snow

Normally, almost the whole Finland is covered in snow in the winter. Winter nature is not as quiet and lifeless as often thought. Many animals, especially mammals, are on the move all year round and the traces in the snow reveal it. The feeling of silence is due to the fact that a large number of mammals, especially mammals, are nocturnal. Here in the wilderness, there are many animals that you rarely get close to or encounter elsewhere.
