Can you believe it's been 10 years since "The Crocodile Hunter" Steve Irwin's passing?

On Saturday, his 18-year-old daughter Bindi Irwin took to Instagram to commemorate her father's life.

In addition to posting a sweetest pic of the two when Bindi was a baby girl, she referred to her dad as "my hero":

"You'll be my hero for my entire existence," she wrote. "I love you more than words can describe."

As it happens, the anniversary of Steve's passing falls on Australia's National Father's Day, a fact his wife and Bindi's mom Terri Irwin brought up via Twitter the same day.

"Happy Father's Day Australia," she wrote. "Hug your dad."

Bindi's now 12-year-old brother Robert can be seen on the right.

Dedicated conservationist, avid adventurer, and TV personality Steve Irwin passed tragically on September 4, 2006 in the Batt Reef of Australia after being stabbed by a stingray.

Roughly nine years later, Bindi would compete on Dancing With the Stars, winning first place alongside coach Derek Hough and once again bringing her father's memory into the spotlight.
