    These look like big bities mate.

    I know that these are not too dangerous but definitely not a creature that I would use a 20mm lens with lol.

  • They only take one human a years, lots of little yappers but only 1 person.

    He might be thinking, come a little closer so I can get a taste of you…
    But I see you had a 300mm lens on…A wise move Larry…

  • I still have all my fingers and toes 8<)))
