The title pretty much sums it up. I've tried bombing the puddle and scooping it with a bottle, but no luck.

Isn't there a fish in there? – user9983 Feb 20 '12 at 4:21
Nope. I would have figured that out, promise. – Matthew Read Feb 20 '12 at 5:26
If you play Epona's Song to the cow, and you have an empty bottle, the cow will give you Lon Lon milk. – Andrew Lambert Feb 20 '12 at 6:33
I did do that, but I always hate getting milk and potions and stuff. Just give me faeries and I'm good. – Matthew Read Feb 20 '12 at 6:36
You've got the answer in your title - "like an idiot". – hairboat Feb 23 '12 at 17:57

You can try using the Sun Song or Song of Storms here - often this means that there is a special sort of fairy present that can fill your life and your magic. You can't, however, keep these fairies in jars.

Usually something in the area determines what song you should play - since there is water present, the song of storms would be your best bet.

Aha, I remember that now. Thanks! – Matthew Read Feb 20 '12 at 5:26

In areas where Navi turns green you can usually get something to happen by playing the Song of Storms, the Sun Song or the Scarecrow song.

From the screenshot you included it should be the Sun Song or the Song of Storms from memory.

I played Song of Storms there, and a golden ball appeared that restored all my health and magic when it touched me. I couldn't catch it in a bottle, though.

The Song Of Storms summons a big, reddish-pink fairy, there's one in the Shadow Temple, too, and, near the little river/pond in Hyrule Field...there are more, too. Just look for Navi randomly flying around a place, green in colour. :D

Also, that grotto with the cow in it, in Death Mountain, is pretty...I just love it!! <3

This cave does not contain a Great Fairy. – Matthew Read Jan 29 '15 at 19:36
