This man took the worst photo of the Loch Ness monster we've ever seen

A couple of tips for taking a photo of the Loch Ness Monster.

1) Don't take it from Iowa

That's it, actually. That's our only tip. But that's what Jim Winiski, an American paranormal investigator did this Tuesday.

Okay, we might be being a tad hyperbolic. What Winiski actually did was take a screenshot from the ‘Nessie on the Net’ webcam he was watching on his lunch break.

"I was eating my lunch and watching when suddenly the frame showed up with Nessie. I wasn’t even familiar with how to take a screen capture, but I just hit control/screen print – and I was able to get it," he said, claiming the sighting lasted between 10 and 12 seconds. 

"Whatever that is, at the distance out from shore, I’d say it has to be eight to ten feet out of the water," Winiski went on.

The snap has now been logged as an actual, credible sighting by the Official Loch Ness Monster Sightings Register, making it the third official sighting of Nessie this year. 

Good. Okay. Sure. Carry on.
