A mother has captured every Australian parent's worst fear, after the world's second deadliest land snake snuck into frame as she took a photo - settling right next to her two-year-old daughter.

Bianca Dickinson was taking photos of her daughter Molly on Wednesday but as Molly posed, a deadly eastern brown snake slithered into position behind her.

At first, Ms Dickinson though it was a piece of bark that had come off a tree.

"It was really windy," she said.

"Then I looked up out of the camera to see where the bark went and saw a big mother of a snake."

Fortunately, the toddler didn't see the critter - and it didn't seem to take notice of her either.

"I'm surprised it didn't touch her, it was so close," Ms Dickinson said.

"I checked her for bite marks still."
