    What a glorious pair, singing the The Hallelujah Chorus (or maybe they’re just happy to see Johanna), or perhaps a Steely Dan song (involving the ‘dread Moray Eel’). What ever they are up to, you have caught them magnificently, Norbert! Bravo.

  • I am a great fan of Steely Dan, and I have a large number of there songs. But I’ve never heard a song about a dread Moray eel. Do you know the title of this song? Thank you for your compliment.

    Big spots and smaller spots. Male and female? Anyway, it’s a magic moment, Norbet, caught by the master.

  • I was not sure about male and female of this two moray eels. “The couple” is just a name for the picture! Thank you very much Gary.

    The line ‘stalking the dread Moray eel’ is from ‘Glamour Profession’, which is on the ‘Gaucho’ album.

  • Thank you very much, but this song is not one of my favs.
