The ‘Loch Ness monster’ has been caught in a video 4k video taken by a canoeist’s drone.
Footage shot by Richard Mavor, 54, shows a mysterious black shape on the banks of the lake in Scotland.
The drone video zooms in on the dark Nessie-shaped shadow which wriggles as the camera gets closer.
Mavor said there was no driftwood in the vicinity and that the shadow had ‘the same shape as previous sightings of Nessie’.
He was shooting for Youtube channel, Richard Outdoors, when he captured the remarkable footage in August.
Mavor captured the footage on his drone while in Scotland, but did not notice the shadow lurking at the lake’s banks until viewers on his YouTube channel pointed it out in the comments

He did not notice the shadow lurking at the edge of the footage until viewers on his channel pointed it out in the comments, according to the Daily Record.
He said: ‘I couldn’t believe it. I had to rewind the footage several times and have watched it several times since.’
Mavor was wild camping doing the Great Glen Canoe Challenge – a 60 mile paddle across Scotland – for the Alzheimer’s Society when he took the video.
‘The more I watch it I think “crikey!” there really wasn’t anything in the area that could be,’ he added.

‘We had just parked up and I thought I would get some nice shots on the beach for my Youtube.
‘I didn’t notice what I had picked up until others told me to watch out for it. It could be a trick of the light but we can’t be sure.’
Mavor, from Skipton, North Yorkshire, completed Great Glen Canoe Challenge in four days in August and raised £15,000 for the Alzheimer’s Society.
