Not a monster's claw but still pretty painful. Whilst pursuing butterflies the other day I kept hearing a snapping sound that wasn't related to my progress through the undergrowth. I was unsure what it was until, whilst stooping low, I found myself pelted by several seeds from one of these. They are the seed pods of a vetch of some sort and their method of seed dispersal involves the pod snapping open and flinging the seeds at passing photographers. That should up the insurance premiums. Canon EOS 40D
