A baby deer enjoying a rest in the shady grass at Ukraine's Odessa Zoo looked utterly content as it received a gentle nuzzle from a passing cat.

Photographer Vitaly Ktach captured the tender moment, saying that zoo visitors were "watching in disbelief" as the two creatures shared their mutual affection. "They looked in bliss!" he said of the new friends.
