Shooting thru a fence

As wide an aperture as you can get, get as close to the fence as
possible. The cleanest result is with the fence in shadow and the
subject in sunlight - the other way around doesn't work at all. You
still tend to get funky crosshatching in the out of focus areas.
Well said. And that's how a nature-shooting expert like me (I believe this is my third [count 'em] nature shot of all time), can get bird shots like this.
