No.I just ensured that the background (out of focus bracken) was sufficiently far enough away to be completely out of focus when using a 400mm lens at f5.6-f11.

Thanks Chris,Heather and Angela for looking and commenting.

That heather BG compliments the little Dunnock beautifully.

Nice detailed image with a nice pose. The bracken in the B/G must have been a long way back it all looks too clean.

That was the intention Smile. It was approx 70-80 feet behind the bird.

In fact,prior to setting up my feeding station each Winter,I spend a few hours, with a scythe clearing back the bracken to a suitable distance.

You can tell this is a natural background.... no lasso signs on the bird. Great image. Love it.

Excellent shot, sharpness and colours are great, the bird has a good contrast to the blurred background IMO...
I like the composition as well.
