At the bird feeder
At our first lodge, there was a bird feeder which attracted a red
squirrel as well as various forest birds.

Vili the friendly reindeer
Vili was supposed to be part of a semi-wild herd of reindeer, free-ranging around the forests. But he had decided he would rather stay at the lodge, and even followed us when we went on a walk one day. He often stood with his head in the minibus, probably to shade his head from the sun.
