Fairy Flies at Sunset

November 10th, 2016

The fairy flies have been out in force for the past few weeks. They’re such interesting creatures, they almost look like tiny fuzz balls floating through the air. I love seeing them floating around as the sun sets low in the sky.
I can see why the call them fairy flies both up close and from afar they look otherworldly. I didn’t get a close-up of them, google them and look at all the photos. The ones we have here and fuzzy and lavender in color. This time of year, they make a lovely evening even more magical.

Have you ever seen fairy flies?
