Over the years a number of people have come forward with photos claiming to show the legendary Loch Ness monster, but most of them are almost always determined to be hoaxes or cases of mistaken identity.
But a new image taken by a amateur photographer and whisky warehouse worker from Scotland has some people convinced that this is actually the real thing.
Ian Bremner, 58, says he was riding around the Scottish Highlands looking for deer last Saturday when he snapped the above photo of what he believes is the most convincing photo ever taken of the famous Loch Ness monster commonly referred to as Nessie. Of course the internet has gotten behind the idea:
I am 100% convinced of the new Loch Ness monster evidence. I’m sat here looking at the photo with my Area 51 mug and Bigfoot onesie.

Others on the internet aren’t so sure, pointing out that the photo looks a lot like three seals playing in the water:
I'm no zoologist…but I'm pretty damn sure this is a photo of three seals.

You idiots, The Loch Ness Monster WANTS you to think it’s just 3 seals playing in the water.
