"It blended so well I looked harder and realized what was there," Joy Mills, the girl's mom, told The Dodo.
A snake, stretched out on the tree trunk — staring directly at the posing seventh grader.
Mills’ mom immediately told her to come over to her, and at first, Mills had no idea what was going on. Not wanting to freak her out, her mom didn’t tell her about the photobombing snake until she was well away from the tree, and as soon as she saw him, Mills was shocked. She had no idea she’d been sharing her moment with such an unlikely friend.
