    It makes me happy too! :)

    If you want to further isolate the background from the pigeon, shoot at the widest aperture. That should give you a shallower depth of field to throw the background out of focus.

    Thanks for the tip - this was at a fairly wide aperture ( I don't use the widest of F/4 due to lack of sharpness ) but the bird was almost against the background anyway ( about six inches away ) so the chances of getting it to defocus were pretty slim. If there had been more distance between subject and background, it would have thrown out quite nicely.
