On Wednesday afternoon, Bianca Dickinson was waiting for her three eldest children to come off the school bus at the end of their driveway in Australia when she chose to take a cute photo of her 2-year-old daughter, Molly.
'After I took the photo I looked up and the bark was gone, that's when I saw the snake - by that time it had nearly slithered past her.
"Then I looked up out of the camera to see where the bark went and saw a big mother of a snake".
But a more thorough look will reveal that a snake, identified as from the eastern brown variety, was gliding dangerously near Molly.
And like anyone, was taken aback when she spotted slithering photo-bomber.
The mother told The New Zealand Herald that she noticed that something was moving but presumed it to be a tree bark due to the strong winds. "I think it was touching her boots it was that close", she told news.com.au after the incident on Wednesday afternoon (March 29).

He had got the two-wheeler booked by paying Rs 2000 yesterday to one of the automobile showrooms at Malik Market in Narwal area. Industry estimates said the total value of the vehicles likely to be impacted by the ban will amount to Rs 20,000 crore.
Ms Dickinson was waiting for her older children when she made a decision to click a photo of her two-year-old. "[But] I stayed still and luckily so did she, and it slithered off".
'It took all my strength not to charge in and grab Molly - the snake was still close enough to turn around and bite us at that point so I had to wait.
Dickinson checked her phone and found she had captured the giant reptile in three shots.
"It was horrifying - luckily it was over in seconds", she said.
"We know that they are out there but I guess we don't have them come that close to us..."
Only seconds later she noticed a snake nearly two feet long crawling near little Molly leg.
She credits being able to walk away from the potentially deadly encounter to Molly being "completely oblivious" to it all and to her not freaking out in the moment.
