Was it a convincing Loch Ness Monster sighting or was it seals playing?

That's the question being debated on the internet after amateur photographer Ian Bremner, 58, shared a photo that could possibly be the most convincing image ever taken of the beast that's been the topic of Scottish lore for nearly two centuries, the Express reported Friday.

Bremner told the Express he was in the area snapping nature photos when he spotted an animal swimming in the water. But it wasn't until he returned home later and reviewed the shot that he noticed the creature appeared to have three humps.

"When you're up there you're constantly looking in the water to see if you can spot anything in there," Bremner told the Express. "This is the first time I've ever seen Nessie in the loch. I would be amazing if I was the first one to find her."

"I'm normally a bit of a skeptic when it comes to Nessie and I think it's just something for the tourists but I'm starting to think there is something out there. When I saw it on my screen I said, 'What the hell is that?' If you're fishing there it's the sort of place where you can get a tingle up your spine and second guess what you're seeing," he continued.

Accounts of a beast living in Scotland's Loch Ness, which is located in the Scottish Highland and stretches for about 23 miles, have been around for 1,500 years, according to History.com. The modern legend of the Loch Ness Monster began in 1933 when the local newspaper, the Inverness Courier, recounted a couple's claim of seeing it, which immediately created a buzz.

Bremner told the Daily Mail that his pictures appear to match the common description of Nessie as a long, serpent-like creature.

But some on social media believe the image clearly shows a group of seals swimming, and many mocked Bremer's Loch Ness Monster claims.
