If no one has mentioned it yet: male grey seals are darker than the females.

I think we are seeing a prelude to seal-sex, and she's making a run for it.

I wasn't expecting that; but there ya go.

So when do seals go for a vaca in cold Scottish lochs?

They don't.

What makes you think the image is from the loch? Landmarks?
. I'm no expert on seals but I can't sea why they couldn't survive in the cold water of Loch Ness. I have personally seen them in the north sea and having swam in there myself I can tell you that is pretty damn cold

You don't find a lot of seals in lakes.

Isn't Loch Ness accessible to the sea ?

Many lakes are. You don't find a lot of seals in lakes. Loch Ness, or otherwise.

I've just looked and it's highly unlikely they could make it that far

Come on folks...you're getting sloppy in your analysis. How has no one mentioned that in front of the back hump there is a separate individual splash, and in front of the middle hump there is also a another individual splash?

If this was one singular creature - the middle and rear sections wouldn't be causing huge splashes like that, as if they jumped out of the water and back in not connected to the rest of the body. The back sections would glide more smoothly through the water.

Also what is the natural/environmental advantage or reason for a serpent to be arching its body vertically out of the water like this while traveling? All long serpentine animals undulate from side-to-side through the water, like snakes and eels because it makes physical sense when navigating and moving. Ones that would appear to go out vertically like this arching their backs are smaller creatures like otters, seals, and dolphins.

No. Conger eels are the disconnect.
They don't have legs and they don't live in fresh water.

Except when the 'conger eel' in question is the Two-toed Amphiuma
Has legs.
Lives in fresh water.
Called 'conger eel' by many.

In any case, it isn't. Is it?
Don't see no legs, neither.

If it was one creature would you say you could be wrong. As no man has ever seen any creature like it to know how it swims or what types of splashes it makes when swimming.

It may very well be seals or otters. I have never seen an eel swim like that either. But to make a clear claim that it couldn't be one animal because of splashes shows that you are not willful enough to recognize that NO ONE has seem Nessie or any thing like it so no one could draw a conclusion on how the creature might swim.

I am not saying you are wrong but just that you are only working on the assumption it is three animals instead of an unknown one that no one has ever seen swim before.

I myself think it is Otters because in the photo from Scotman.com shows water more near the shore and no lake has waves that large unless there is a storm. I believe it is much closer and smaller than we are being led to believe.

The Photog is not being forthcoming about this picture.

That is an assumption on my part I will admit and it has yet to be proven, but I have my suspicions by studying the picture form scotsman.com that he could be. the aforementioned picture seems to be taken close to the ground if you look at the fore waves. which would mean this person was actually seeing the what he was photographing. It didn't just appear later. I bet if we could look at ALL his pictures from that day he actually had a series of photo's taken in synchronic order of the creature or creatures in said photo.

I would venture that those images would also indicate that the location was not Loch Ness.

But maybe he just got his pictures from the seaside (of seals frolicking) confused with his pictures from the loch. Easy error to make.

Better read up on the amphiuma. The article that I linked speaks of their legs, toes and how they are referred to as the 'conger eel'.
