Is it you, Nessy? A possible hump and part of a tail, or perhaps a spike on the creature's back, can be seen breaking the surface of the water near Fort Augustus, Scotland
It seems like after a rash of recent Bigfoot sightings and videos, now we are seeing a deluge of sea monster stories, photos and videos. Here’s the latest story from a man who claims to have spent his life searching for Nessie, and he now believes he has finally caught her on film.
At first glance it looks like another dark ripple on the water.But study the photograph more closely and a dark hump and tail can be seen poking through the water’s surface, or so a life-long hunter of the Loch Ness monster hunter claims.William Jobes, 62, believes that he may have at last captured the elusive creature on camera after 45 years of trying.Mr Jobes was walking along the Abbey footpath in Fort Augustus with his wife Joan in May this year when he spotted what appeared to be a head bobbing above the water 200 to 300 yards from the shore.

‘I had a wonderful shock,’ Mr Jobes said.’I have actually been coming up to Inverness for the past 45 years and I have never seen anything like this before.’Quickly grasping his camera, Mr Jobes from Irvine in Ayrshire, managed to take a single picture before the ‘head’ disappeared under the surface. However, to his delight a dark, hump-like shape broke the waves and he was able to take more photographs of the apparent sighting on May 24 at just after 11.10am.Mr Jobes is convinced it was not a seal or piece of wood.‘To be honest I know the difference between a piece of wood or a particular animal,’ he said.‘I immediately did think it was a seal but it’s head was like a sheep.’However, veteran Nessie hunter Steve Feltham, remains sceptical, although he admits the hump photograph cannot be immediately explained and is worth further investigation.‘The river comes out there and something large could have come down the river and flowed out there,’ he suggested.Mr Jobes’ is the second potential sighting of nessie so far this summer.Last month Foyers shop and cafe owner Jan Hargreaves and her husband Simon believe they caught a glimpse of the creature.
