A male fairy getting ready to perform an astonishing flying display in order to gain the favour of the female. I suppose this is a part of their mating ritual, but I haven't been able to catch a glimpse of anything other than these drastic shows. I shall have to conduct a thorough research on the subject before I will be able to conclude any such theories. This is done with black and coloured ink and watercolours on coarse aquarelle paper (my favourite!) As usual, I messed up the background, although thanks to photoshop, it's less horrible here than on the original. Also, the colours of this picture as well are more vivid on the original, I dunno what's wrong with my scanner, I guess it just doesn't like bright colours.
