Do Moths Have Fangs?

(1/3) > >>

Mt Spokane Photography:
Taken this morning on my screen door with 100mm L  Notice the slightly out of focus "Fangs" accross the front of his face.  I took these handheld with a flash and difuser to get as much depth of field as I could.  It was shady on our porch.  Much of the USA is hot, but we are 10 degrees below normal in the Northwest.





Joost:
I like your first picture, but the second one has too much noise in it.

Hesbehindyou:
Fascinating.  I wonder if they're used to keep the furry antennae in good condition?  On a similar note, I snapped this photo of a house spider and was surprised to see they've got lots of little teeth as well as the two big fangs:

dr croubie:
I'd say that looks like some kind of a Hawk Moth, but i'm not sure if you get them over in the States. (I'll break out my backup hdd later and find an old pic i'm thinking of that looks like the one you've got there).

Got a shot of face-on to see the fangs better? I've no idea what they could be...

I'm not sure what it is, I did not take a photo of the front.

They are common, my son took a photo with our G12 the other day, holding the camera with one hand, and moth in the other.  He did not know to turn it to the macro setting, so its a bit oof.
