The 53 year-old Manchester Metropolitan University lecturer has been photographing the creatures for the past two years. At first, he didn't realise what he was capturing in his images. "It was a bit of a shock when I blew them [the photos] up," he told The Daily Mail. "I went out afterwards and took pictures of flies and gnats and they just don’t look the same."

In 1920, Elsie Wright and Frances Griffiths' photographs of frolicking fairies convinced many photographic experts at the time, but were finally debunked in the 1970s as shots of post cardboard cut-outs.
