Musician John Rutledge decided to take a snap of the summer morning as he walked through a field near Newbridge, Wales.
It was only when he reviewed the pictures he saw what looked like seven tiny winged creatures flying among the flowers and grass.
John, a rapper from Goldie Lookin Chain, zoomed in and saw the transluscent figures, around 4cm tall, appeared to have wings, arms and legs.
John 39, from Newport, South Wales said: “It’s amazing.
“The last thing I expected was a winged entity in a wood in South Wales, but there it is, smack bang in your face – it’s solid evidence.”
He added: “There are some things in the universe that may well go without answers, but I think we’ve just put one of the world’s biggest mysteries to bed.
“There are definitely fairies at the bottom of the garden.”
John was scouting locations for his new podcast series, Unexplainers – investigating common myths and mysteries – when he took the photo last month.
