Thanks all....The Zuiko 70-300mm gives a really great bokeh at the long end using f5.6. The pond behind the duck was reflecting all the new growth in sunlight while two Raccoons and some kind of Otter were causing many ripples in the water. The end result as you can see is a kind of painted look to the background.

Did you have to use a filter for that too? Love it!
