Today's moment of zen is brought to you by a little girl named Maya and her friend, a cute and curious fawn.

Brad Herring, Maya's father, posted their heartwarming encounter to his Vimeo account Tuesday. He wrote:

We were unpacking the car from a canoe trip when this fawn stumbled across our front yard and into Maya's arms. The fawn had a good sense about Maya and followed her every step. They were inseparable from the moment the met. Maya knew it needed its mother, who we believe was off eating and recuperating from the birthing, so she led it back to the woods until it finally hunkered down.

Maya appears to have quite the way with nature. Herring even set up a blog that documents many of her outdoor adventures.

Children and animals, what could be better?
