I went walking in the woods yesterday looking to try out my new Canon 100mm 2.8 macro lens...and stumbled onto this guy. After about a 1/2 hour of swatting biting bugs I finally got him to stick out his tongue. What a great lens...cool!

I wonder why he had to swat all those biting bugs before he would stick his tongue out?

Yikes, that's something I would shoot with the 400mm lens. You must have been close. Glad to see that your patience paid off :)
