Colour! Woohoo! My second fae drawing. This lil' gal is releasing a fayling she had raised. Faylings are very small creatures, that are mainly nocturnal. Similar to fireflys they glow, only their s is a bright blue-white light. To us way-too-big humansthey appear as a simply large dustmote, or a trick of the light. They prefer to roost in birch, willow, aspen, almond, cherry or apple trees, though a more Eastern strain prefer a good strong maple anyday, and the South-West Giant Fayling ( which yes, I shall publish a picture of soon) prefers a good Cedar, Redwood, Douglas Fir or any tall, thick conifer as its home. They feed on necatr, the syrup and juices of fruit and the occasional aphid. They are very good for your garden, and you can buy them from any respectable fae shop keeper, as most fae keep them as pets, and faylings breed quite quickly, having one mating season in fall,winter,spring, and summer, and they produce about 5-6 offspring, faylites,  in a litter. You can not recognize a fayling by its outward appearance, (except the Oriental golden and Rose species, and the Rainbow Triller variety, which are endangered, in South America) but by its unique song. Each fayling has a melody of hums, whistles and trills that is easily recognizable. Only mating faylings ever sing the same song, they sing each other's songs together, decide if they like the sound of each other and go from there. Sorry for the long explanation, but I knew someone was going to ask " what are those floaty fae type thingmajiggers?"
