In this photo, the background sky has a pattern that I worry ruins it. I wait as long as I could to take this pick while there was still good light, but shadows were coming fast. So I could not avoid the migratory bird formation that is snaking above the aircraft in the sky.

Does this ruin the photo for submission? They're probably what the rejection guide would consider "indistinguishable from dust spots", yet there are so many spots I think most people would know what's going on. Thoughts?

Oh, and I welcome any other critique or comments on the photo. Thanks as always!

Well, the birds are very distracting for me. But, it doesn't really fit the description of the dustspot category.

Just include a note to the screeners that it is a large flock of birds, and you should be fine.

Do you think I should include it in the description as well for the viewers?

Not really, it's barely noticeable.

What is more of a concern I imagine is the cone intruding into the aircraft fuselage. I'm not 100% sure but it looks as though it could have been preventable.

not really. the best angle I could make from right to left due to fuel trucks, and I could only gain so much altitude. Any lower would make the cone more prominent.

thanks everyone!
