Wow! I wonder how a prop would handle compared to jet engines.

A very clever angle to shoot from. It isn't obvious at first that the Q400 is actually taxiing as the plane and birds capture your attention first. Very well done Sofia.

The beauty of the nature(birds and mountains)as well as the man-made structure is been shot very beautifully giving it mesmerizing feel.

Amazing shot! It's great that there is a hole within the flock and the plane is framed by the birds

What are the chances of prop-syncronization while taxiing! -or- Is this a DHC-8 cuisinart!

Great capture of these two flocks of birds. Did any birdstrike happen that day?

Pretty photo but a potentially dangerous situation...a flock of birds that size at an airport could have tragic consequences....

Many smaller birds vs a large one. Never seen so many birds at SOF.

I feel the need to add some additional info to the photo. The airplane is taxiing on taxiway Hotel on its way to RNW 27 , the two flocks of birds are actualy really far away from the aircraft and are in no way putting the engines in danger. By the time the aircraft reached the runway the birds were long gone. Its just a really good visual illusion that the plane and the birds might collide. Regards Ivan Angelov - BGspotters team
