New Nessie Photos Confound Cryptozoologists

William Jobes has been going to Loch Ness for 45 years, hoping to snap a photo of the elusive Loch Ness Monster -- and he believes he may finally have done just that! Jobes says what he believes to have been Nessie's head surfaced in the loch about 200-300 yards from the shore where he stood back in May and he managed to get a single picture. Luckily, what may have been Nessie's back and tail popped up a moment later and Jobes snapped several shots.

While skeptics claim the photos show a stick that may have floated downriver, other experts aren't so sure. The best of the pictures seems to show a rather nondescript "hump" with what may be a tail poking out of the water just behind it.

"I know the difference between a piece of wood or a particular animal. I immediately did think it was a seal but it's head was like a sheep." Jobes told reporters. The picture, taken about 11:10am on May 24th, 2011, can be seen at The Daily Mail.

In June, owners of a cafe on Loch Ness claimed to have spotted Nessie, though many dismissed their claim as financially-motivated.
