Was this a religious or civil ceremony?
The love match was cemented between two giant eels in a romantic moonlit ceremony.
The music was courtesy of Dean Martin:

"When the Moon hits your eye like a big pizza pie - that's a Moray..."

nessie pic

Anyone know who took this pic?

(Image is MIA. It is subsequently identified as the 1977 Shiels photo. This specimen of the 1977 Shiels photo is inserted as a substitute for the MIA photo originally posted here.)
Tony 'Doc' Shiels. The pic may well be a close up of a painting by him. A guy i know said Shiels told him he did the panting on silk and took a close up of it.

Another doc from the Loch. You have to love Steve Feltham giving up the drudgery of 9 to 5 and chasing his dream. The guy is a legend.

Steve Feltham's own video diary of his first 6 months at the Loch. He's still there, good on him!

Outside my comfort zone.
I really hope that's a typo. Otherwise... ewwwww.
He was just tired that night. See this:

This pastime belongs in different kind of forum . . . the fabric fetish forum!

Actually LordMongrove, I hope you don't mind, I thank you for your typos, since they've brought me something to smile about in a week that is even stranger and tenser than just last week, which was even stranger and tenser than the week before that, which had already been stranger and tenser than the week before that, which was grievously stranger and tenser than the one before that, . . .

I'm utterly dislexic when it comes to spelling. I'm a writer too, i have seven books out. My spell check has a dicky fit most of the time.

I was thinking one of those Willy Worms. A big one.

An otter eating a kill on the shore.

l have managed to walk to within 40’ of an otter eating an octopus on the shore of our bay on Skye. Obviously the soft body of a cephalopod made little or no noise, but Mr. Otter wasn’t a dainty eater; had his prey been a crustacean or a gristly fish, his chewing would have been audible for some distance.

A big dog otter could be up to five feet in overall length, and weigh 50lbs. The “tubular” appearance and V-shaped wake are also characteristic of the otter.

Indeed, I've been within a few feet of an otter eating a perch on a canal bank and they are very noisy eaters. He was so engrossed in his meal that he didn't hear or see me coming until i was about 5 feet away. he ran into the canal leaving the perch behind but after a minute (and when i had moved a little bit away) he came back out to retrieve his catch. They are surprisingly big animals when you see them up close. I've seen stoats up close as well and otters are considerably bigger. The best comparison I can give is comparing a jack russel to medium sized labrador

Yes they are big. It also was dark and it may have been casting a shadow behind it from the moon making it look even bigger.
