The wildlife photographer also shared two pictures of him and Grace on what appears to be a lavender farm. The toddler is wearing a pink jacket with the hood pulled up outside (it’s winter in Australia, after all!). Irwin is crouched next to her, dressed in khaki pants, a green button-down shirt, and a hat. He’s leaned down talking to her. In the next picture, Grace is walking along the rows of plants with a determined look on her face. Irwin walks just behind her, smiling down at his niece. You can tell he adores her!
