Traditionally, fairies are said to have the ability to enchant or cast spells over people. Mostly, fairies are considered to be good, but there have been records of them kidnapping or even killing people. On the other hand, some farmers have said that fairies have helped with their crops.
The first photograph of fairies was a prank photo taken by Elsie Wright, 15, and Frances Griffiths, 10, in Cottingley.
The media raved about it, until Elsie admits that they were fake. However, she still did claim that she saw fairies...
People still manage to snap shots of fairies. Here are a few photos.
