i think i found the source of my exhaust rattle (pic)

notice the red arrow. this is after the cat at the front end of my catback exhaust. it seems to be hitting the back end of the heat shield. what do you guys think i should do? i don't think it wise to remove the heat shield, but what else could i do?
