I think I might have nightmares tonight. Please someone tell me these sharp 4 pointy things are not fangs!! Then look at the macro and tell me what the heck is dripping off what looks to be fangs. I have never seen a sunspider this big and hope I never do again!! You guys have no idea how scared I was taking these shots, especially the ones with the mp-e. Dang thing kept charging me too.
