When you're a kid, the whole world looks enormous.

For one little girl who came face-to-face with a peacock, the short lived terror was caught in a very unhappy snap by her mum.

Eva, who's nearly five, bravely approached the feathered friend, but was instantly scared as the bird turned around to face her.

"Eva got closer to the peacock to see his feathers on display, he let out a loud squawk and she turned on her heel immediately in absolute terror. This all happened within a half a second," her mum told Buzzfeed.

Let's take a look at the full photo in all its glory:

It all started with a family trip to a petting zoo in North Carolina, and after her mum snapped the golden moment, her aunt Sarah Stonier did what any loving family member would do and posted it to social media.

Unsurprisingly the internet responded in hilarious fashion, creating a host of memes using some rather impressive Photoshop skills.

What a memento of such a terrifying occasion.
