Real-life faries?

I found this article on Yahoo today that was discussing a new type of insect which they appropriately named Tinkerbell nana after its feather-like, fringed wings. This fairyfly is tiny, only about .0005 inches in length when its full grown but it is very helpful in farms and other agricultural areas because it feeds off the eggs and larvae of insects. The link below has the rest of the article and couple pictures of the fly which are pretty interesting.
