A British woman claims to have photographed a fairy in her garden.

article-1211845-06533B56000005DC-129_306x298.jpgMrs Bacon, 55, said she was not even looking through the camera at the time she took the picture.

Instead she simply clicked the button while holding it at arm's length out of the back door while chatting with relatives in her kitchen after dinner.

Astonished by what she saw when she glimpsed at the picture, she has spent months seeking a rational explanation.

But after scouring the internet for pictures of butterflies, moths and beetles that might match it, she has drawn a blank.

'I think it must be a fairy,' she said yesterday as she made the picture public for the first time.

Scientists who have examined the photograph closely announced this morning that it is not George Michael trolling for sex although the "fairy fungal ring" gave them pause for a bit.

Full picture after the jump.

I've taken several pictures of fairies in my back garden through the years. Can't post 'em here though.

I recognize that little lost fairy.... It's Clay Aiken; thinking he was playing to a packed house in Covent Garden! Alas; his GPS was on the fritz, and he appeared in an empty garden :(

Maybe he was searching for Elton John's Empty Garden. Probably a bunch of fairies there too. *cheesy grin*

Wow. You guys are so mature. All the fairy jokes are just side splitting. Grow up and stop being homophobes. I know being cruel and intolerant is highly fashionable these days but what your doing is not cool at all.
