A new photograph showing a moving object in the middle of the Solent has caused eyewitnesses to question if it was the Loch Ness Monster enjoying a holiday.
The extraordinary sighting of three humps bobbing up and down in the water comes just days after a similar shape was spotted in The Thames by the O2 Arena in London.
The picture - taken 630 miles away from Loch Ness - has resulted in Trevor and Jo Wilde questioning if it was Nessie swimming past.
Three humps emerged from the water as the Nessie-shaped creature - first brought to the world's attention in 1933 -was thought to be making its way around the island.
The fascinating object was spotted in The Solent when Jo, from Newport, Isle of Wight, saw it move up and down when she was heading to Cornwall to see her family.
She quickly took the photograph from the deck of Wightlink's Fishbourne to Portsmouth ferry.
It comes after mysterious footage showed a similar humped object moving in the River Thames in London.
The recent sighting also comes after a 1970s film prop of Nessie from the Billy Wilder movie The Private Life Of Sherlock Holmes was discovered in Scotland this week.
Jo's husband Trevor, from Newport, said: 'It was right in the middle of the Solent, which we find rather strange.
'I don't think there are any sandbanks near where the ferry goes for rocks to be able to poke out of the water.
'We've looked at the picture a lot and still it really confuses us. Whatever it was seemed to be gently moving along side of the boat.
'It had a really shiny texture to it.

It would be interesting to think after feeling that Nessie was not real that she was.
There is a color called Solent Blue. Wonder if there is a Solent Green?
It was just Stacey Abrams on vacation!
It was just Stacey Abrams on
vacation her hols!
What a disgusting-sounding word! I loathe such Anglicisms!
I think those are called waves.
I agree. Just watch, it'll start popping up soon. Just like "jabs" and "spot on" and "going to hospital or uni".
Thanks nickcarraway. Nessie tastes like chicken, btw.
Loch Ness became land locked over 12,000 years ago.
Plesiosaurs died out 66 million years ago at the end of the Cretaceous Period.
They missed each other by a wide margin.
Loch Ness is only 22 miles long and has virtually nothing that would support such a creature and the seas that Plesiosaurs swam were salt water, not fresh water.
