Sometimes nature is just begging to be turned into a Disney movie. This is an example of one of those times.You see, here we have a tale of a friendship so adorable that it has to be seen to be believed. These two precious souls were brought together and documented by a German professional animal photographer. And we should all thank her for this cuteness.

They'll rouse. They'll go up into a tree and let their feathers dry."
