    The incredible details of the sighting which was at such close range is often reported as a "sea serpent". The details say that it swam without flippers in a perfectly straight line without undulations. It was also reported as having a kind of "mane" behind it's head, which is the same as the Nessie sightings of a "sea-horse". I've even put two and two together to speculate that the "lizard-like" creature may in fact be the sea nymph of a giant flying insect, similar to the water nymph of a dragonfly! Amazing and crazy, I know, but just about plausible imv.

    Another eye-witness account of something similar is reproduced here Giant-Eels In Pairs Near Panama Canal?

    The Daedalus states "It was 15 or 16 inches diameter behind the head.." which fits with the above, "..color was a dark brown with yellowish-white about the throat." which again is very similar to the above.

    .............................

    A sighting of Nessie walking on land correlates with the yellowish-white throat seen by HMS Daedalus:

    "The creature was a dark color with the exception of the under part of the neck, which was white. The creature's legs appeared to be very short.." but it moved with great speed which suggests these could also propel it through the water with great rapidity.

    Another clue to the insect hypothesis?

    If the hypothesized adult flying giant insect laid it's eggs in an underwater cave above the waterline with an air-pocket, then this would keep it safe from being eaten by fish etc until it hatched. The giant nymph would then have enough air to make it into the water where it would become a predator itself.

    Sonar breakthrough suggests Loch Ness Monster and Windermere’s Bownessie are directly related

    A dragonfly nymph breathes through its anus.
    A damselfly nymph breathes with gills at the end of its abdomen. The dragonfly nymph's gills, oddly, are inside its rectum. That's right, it breathes with its butt. The dragonfly nymph will pull water into its anus, where gas exchange occurs. When the dragonfly expels the water from its rear, it propels the nymph forward, providing the added benefit of locomotion.

    The downside is an underwear change.

    I've had another thought. What size are these hypothesized giant insect EGGS going to be? Someone would surely have found a rugby-ball sized egg in an air-pocket cave by now, so I'm going to rule this out. The eggs could still be laid small and numerous, with the nymph larvae simply growing and growing until achieving Nessie size before the metamorphosis into a winged being. Is Loch Ness filled with insect nymphs of all sizes. Are they cannibalistic? It seems a likely scenario which could be tested relatively easily.

    This idea ties in with the glitter like lights descending onto two trees in the Pennsylvania UFO case. Are firefly size bugs the offspring of mega-giant flying bugs or perhaps some middle-size ones keep close to the mega-giants in a cooperative survival strategy, similar to fish hiding beneath manta rays?

    On reflection, I think Loch Ness's silty bottom is more of a common factor than air-pocket caves. Large eggs could be safely deposited in the silty bottoms of lakes to become giant insect larvae.

    N.B. Lake Van is so salty there is virtually no fish able to survive. The original outlet from the basin was blocked by an ancient volcanic eruption. Only one type of fish and several plankton have ever been found in Lake Van. The lake doesn't freeze over in winter which would make it a good survival strategy during an ice age. Alburnus tarichi. Presumably, in May and June the giant nymphs would follow the migrating fish to their breeding grounds.

    Is the Mongolian death worm another kind of Giant Flying Insect Larvae?

    There is a clue to the exoskeleton of an insect!!

    The lack of eyes and mouth and nostrils fits with another sighting at close range. The Creature of the Dump

    You're too cynical Captain. Taken together, the evidence is overwhelming for a convincing new hypothesis. There's a firm link between lake monsters, giant worms, giant flying insects and luminous UFOs. What a find! The whole life cycle of these entities can now be established.

    Alpha Waves are possible in other animals as well as humans:

    Helicopter Takes to the Skies With the Power of Human Thought. This is still new territory for research. A detector is therefore possible to ward against giant insect larvae and adults. Good news.

    If ground penetrating radar could be adapted to operate underwater, giant insect eggs could be located deep in the silty bottoms of lochs and lakes.

    At least the Mongolian deserts could be tested for underground eggs, assuming that a small enough location could be identified for investigation.
