Please, just tell me that this is the effect from a zoom ! If not, the authorities at this airport should just be fired to let an aircraft take off or land in such conditions ! It looks insane to my untrained eyes !

Was Mr. Hitchcock somewhere near or is it just because the airport is next to a large waste dump?

They appear so suddenly. They surely love to do this especially when the aircraft is almost airborne.

First......yes, it's a very dramatic photograph.

However, here's what I find "lacking"; guy takes great photo, posts it with absolutely now explanation, comments, whatever. In a case like this, I think the screeners should have insisted on some explanation.

I agree with earlier commenter; photog should give some explanation, what kind of birds, anything.
Having said that, it's a wonderful catch!
