Monster hunter spent 26 years seeking the Loch Ness Monster. Here's his best photo of Nessie

George Edwards has spent 60 hours a week for 26 years of his life, scanning the waters near Urquhart Castle in hopes of catching the Loch Ness Monster. But none of that time has been in vain — for he believes that this is his best photo of Nessie yet.

The 60-year-old monster hunter explained his encounter to The Telegraph "It was slowly moving up the loch towards Urquhart Castle, and it was a dark grey colour. It was quite a fair way from the boat, probably about half a mile away but it's difficult to tell in water." The image was taken last year in November at 9 AM on a compact Samsung digital camera.

He's certain this is the real deal, and so are his other monster hunting pals. We could do with a picture of the head, though.
