Loch Ness Monster move over, England's version of the notorious mystery -- dubbed "Bownessie" by locals -- is hogging the spotlight after a kayaker's recent cell phone photo of something strange in Lake Windermere has been spreading fast around the web.

According to The Telegraph, the photo -- which shows multiple humps rising above the surface of the lake -- is said to be the best evidence to date of Bownessie, and reminiscent of similar photos that some have alleged were of the Loch Ness Monster.

According to CNET, 24-year-old Tom Pickles snapped the pic. "Each hump was moving in a rippling motion, and it was swimming fast," Pickles said of the Loch Ness Monster-like creature. "Its skin was like a seal's but its shape was completely abnormal--it's not like any animal I've ever seen before."

Naturally, the picture is stirring plenty of controversy, as the grainy image makes confirming any of the contents relatively impossible -- but peoples' curiosity certainly has been enticed as the Loch Ness Monster legend rages once more.
