12th Annual Smithsonian Magazine Photo Contest Natural World
Reindeer Farm in the Swedish Lapland

This image of a trio of reindeer was taken at a reindeer farm in the Sami village of Flakaberg in the Swedish Lapland. The Samis are the indigenous people of the Laplands and traditionally are reindeer herders. It was lovely seeing reindeer for the first time in my life and in such a beautiful setting.
