Life goes on (85mm f/1.4g shot)

I'm continuing to give my new lens a workout under various shooting conditions. Here's a nature shot from yesterday - we lost about 100 trees on our wooded lot during Superstorm Sandy and the following snowstorm, and as spring is finally underway here, we've seeing hints of potential future recovery. Taken at f/11, ISO 200, and 1/100 sec:

I was expecting the image to be softer than this at f/11, because of diffraction, and was pleasantly surprised with the result. I will probably shoot this lens a lot more at small apertures for detail work, so that I have a more depth of field to work with.
