Sure, baby goats are cute on their own. But take a baby goat, add an adventurer from Hawaii's Big Island, and put the two of them together in breathtakingly gorgeous vistas, and it's pure gold. Hunter and photographer Jake Marote came across this little guy while hunting; his mother had abandoned him (the umbilical cord was still attached) so Marote took him in, fed him bottles, and never left home without him.
