“Oh my golly…snakes are on the move!” Bianca wrote when she shared the incredible image on Facebook.

“I was out taking a photo of my daughter…and I thought I saw something move! It’s really windy here so I thought it was a bit of bark flying from the tree,” she wrote.

“Looked up to see this massive brown had just passed my 2 year old!”
