    Fake - The bird definitely looks like it's been cut out of a different background.

    Fake, the wing tips give it away. They almost look like they have a glow, probably from a different colored sky.

    Fake. What are the chances of taking that photo at the precise time that the plane and bird happened to be in the exact same location, let alone heading in the same direction? I don't know about camera speeds etc but to get both with no motion blur?

    Fun question though in this world of images getting doctored beyond belief.

    I suppose like the infinite number of monkeys with the infinite number of typewriters, if you had an infinite amount of time (and patience) you might get that shot. My inclination would be to marry two photos.

    Also the chances of getting sharp focus on two objects such as this are a real long shot (so to speak).
