The Huffington Post reports:
"As the legend of Nessie haunting the murky depths of Scotland's most famous Loch continues to endure - could it be possible the monster is not alone?
"A new photograph has opened up the intriguing possibility that two such serpentine beasts are at large.
"Council worker Ian Campbell, 56, was on a bicycle ride with his son and a family friend when he spotted two big 'creatures' apparently swimming across the Loch together.
"Campbell, who insists he is not a man 'given to flights of fancy' is convinced he saw two animals in the water.
"Which raises the question - has Nessie been joined by a mate or could this be a new bouncing baby monster?
"Campbell was on the western shores of Loch Ness while on a bike ride between Fort Augustus and Inverness in August with his son Fraser, 13, and family friend Karen MacPhee, 54, when the two shapes appeared in the water.
"Campbell's son also saw the 'creatures' but MacPhee was cycling some way behind and did not get a good look.
"Campbell says they watched for around 30 seconds before losing sight of the objects but he managed to take a photograph using the camera on his phone.
"He said: 'At the time we saw it we had stopped for a rest and to admire the view. It seemed to appear suddenly from nowhere.
"'I said to my son: 'What is that in the water?' He said to me that it looked like a big animal.
"'I said 'I think you're right' and grabbed my camera phone to take a picture.
"'We watched for about 30 seconds before it disappeared from view and by that time Karen had caught up and she saw it for around five seconds.
"'We talked about it afterwards obviously and we just had no idea what it could be. I would estimate they were 10m in length and I took the picture from around 400m away.
"'I was saying to my son that we had just seen the Loch Ness monster and he was saying 'Yes, right.''See the rest here.
Below is the picture.

Do you think the photo really shows two Loch Ness Monsters? (There has to be more than one anyway.)
Later I'll have another post up about a mysterious "dorsal fin" photo, also supposedly taken at Loch Ness...
