I don't find it distracting at all. You have a sharp subject and my eye jumps to it and studies it. Great 3D. The ability of the lens to separate the subject from/and blur the backround at 7.1 is amazing. I don't think I could use the lens to such good effect. Good job!
Thanks Roger!

Looks very much like the mink we see here too.
It's a mink, I assure you 100%...
At one time, he jumped under water and I could see him swimming under some ice plates, and caught a small fish, but I wasn't able to capture that event... he was just too fast!

Another BIF from last Sunday. Busy background, but AF.c did the trick well. Quite heavy crop (the bird was pretty far away)

Thanks cleaverx!
The trick is to have the background pretty far behind, I am not sure this is something specific to that lens...

2 of my last photo's taken with the DA 560 Can't say the first is fantastic as the setting isn't the nicest. I'm just glad I was able to get a shot of a roughie for once.

Someone had sent me a PM to explain the joke... LOL !

It wasn't a language barrier, it was just my memory that failed LOL!

So, Yeah maybe it was that...

But in fact, because the goose constantly digs in the mud in search of food, its head often becomes stained rusty-orange from the traces of iron in the mud. (Reference)

Nice shots Kameko. How did you like the DA 560?? Was it sharp wide open at f/5.6?? By next summer I want to get long prime, manual focus or AF it makes no difference to me, but it has to be fairly sharp wide open.
My SMC 500mm f/4.5 is super sharp from f/8 to f/16, but in darker conditions I need wider aperture.

That's a great eagle image. He obviously does not appreciate paparazzi.
Not a great image below, scanned from a chrome, but there were more cormorants than ever I'd seen. The long strings of them visible in the image is only a fraction that were out flying this day. There are strings going out to the horizon at right, just barely visible. BTW: cannot remember for certain what lens was used, but most likely a Sigma 300 f4 APO Macro.
