By the look of his eyes…
it looks as though you two(!)
had a loooooong night! 😏
Poor Mrs. Shalom. 😕

Considering your words under the photo; seems like the expression of: – ‘movement is
often under the surface; not always visible’.
Yes, exactly. Magicians like to use that analogy a lot with one another. On the surface, to the audience, everything looks normal. But underneath, the performer is furiously paddling, doing his sleight-of-hand that makes the trick work.
And I guess that applies to most good performing artists; they use “art to conceal art.” The audience should never see them sweating–it should all seem effortless and delightful.
Wow! It looks like a coot-scaup mix!
Could be–is that a known hybrid that happens?
