The babe laughed a laugh that filled all the hollow spaces in the forest. As I fairy I smiled and helped carry it to the tree. Any abandoned or orphaned creatures we brought to our sanctuary. The head fairy, my mother, was the in charge and each fairy was assigned a creature. I was lucky and got the first human. (credit to @Wizard003)
This looks like the underground dwelling of the Tuatha de Danaan, or "Children of Danu", the mythological mother goddess of the Irish Celts. Creatures such as leprechauns and other Fairy Folk were known to inhabit these places, particularly under the burial mounds, which were also known as the fairy mounds for that reason.
Wander into the enchanted forest with Swedish folklore photographer @almightylingonren! She says "Gnomes and trolls top my list of favorite creatures. Small, but powerful. Ingenious little beings that make life more interesting. They make the woods more living and mystic. They know every rock and tree, and when you don't see them - they always see you." So... If you see a candy wrapper, pick it up!!! They're watching! #enchantedwoods #magicalforest #Swedishtrolls #enchantedforest…
“She walked quickly through the darkness with the frank stride of someone who was at least certain that the forest, on this damp and windy night, contained strange and terrible things, and she was it.” ― Terry Pratchett, Wyrd Sisters.Photo by Pablo Castro Fernández
