    I saw a faery once.
    It was about 120ft away around a tree.
    It definately wasnt a bird or butterfly, was wrong size, wrong shape and it wasnt flying the same.
    I stared for ages at it til it disappeared from view into the foliage.
    It was a pale green, or the colours on it were.

    Ah it's a shame it was too far away, as for the drawing, I never thought I could draw but I can turn out a reasonable pic now (I got a U in art at school )

    Hi Jekki3, yes there are always hoaxes but they seem easier to catch out these days, those ladies had people fooled for years.
