We can't get enough of this girl! Bindi Irwin posted a moving tribute to her late dad on Steve Irwin Day, and it's clear that she had a very special relationship with him even at a young age.

Sunday was Steve Irwin Day (can we also take a moment to appreciate how cool it is that there's an official day to celebrate the Crocodile Hunter?), and the 17-year-old Dancing with the Stars contestant posted an awesome photo of her dad, along with a touching tribute.

Is that quintessential Steve Irwin or what? But he didn't just wrestle crocodiles -- Irwin was a huge conservationist, and Bindi has carried on his legacy since she was just 8 years old when he died in 2006.

It's hard to remember that she's just 17, when she so eloquently writes words like these about her dad.

The greatest dad on Earth. November 15. Steve Irwin Day. Remembering everything Dad worked so hard to achieve and continue his legacy. We miss you so much and are extremely proud to be carrying on in your footsteps. Yesterday we celebrated #SteveIrwinDay in Australia. Today, let's celebrate together on the other side of the world, today on November 15. Thank you for joining us in making a difference. Wearing our khakis and remember everything Dad did to change the world.

It's not the first time Bindi has paid tribute to her dad's memory. Her amazing dance with partner Derek Hough on DWTS last month brought down the house. She called the dance one of the hardest things she'd ever done, but by the time she was finished, there wasn't a dry eye in the house.

Speaking of Derek ... he also paid tribute to Steve Irwin by sharing this sweet snap of Bindi and her dad. He added the caption, "It's officially #steveirwinday in Australia. He will always be remembered. #legend #wildlifewarrior @bindisueirwin #teamcrikey4life"

It's obvious the world lost an amazing man way too soon. I'm glad that we haven't forgotten him and all the incredible work he did.
