A Friend of Dragonflies by nillia A Friend of Dragonflies by nillia
She delicately perched herself with the vermin that had attemted to feed on her canine friend. As her wings flutered her to a sit, the mosquito's dangling wing detatched completely and drifted off.

Who says fairies are all magical and danty? This one's a fighter. =D
This particular one has a slighty obsessive bond with dragonflies. She catches mosquitos to feed to the dragonflies that she has found hurt/mangled due to unfortunate accidents. Basicly...she's a hard-core fairy that runs a dragonfly sanctuary.

I can hear the little cries from the poor mosquito now... "Heeelp meee...!"

Cruel!

Love it! Love her expression and especially the wings of the dragonfly. Everything is so detailed and balanced in the sphere of the painting. The color scheme is surreal to the eye, perfect with the mood. Love the little description caption type thing. I'm actually writing an original fiction/fantasy about fairies. They truly aren't all dainty :wink:
