I know a lot of people here have a problem with moths but what about butterflies! I think they are gorgeous! I always associate them with being magical fairies and stuff! What do you think of this flying bug? Are you afraid of it cause it's a flying bug?

Not half as bad as moths but still kind of bad. Depends on how flappy they are.

They're pretty until you actually look close. As long as I'm just seeing wings, I don't mind them.

I like butterflies! I think I like moths more, but their wings are so beautiful.

I found one last month halfway underneath my floormat with one wing ripped off and the other flapping a little still. Thanks, cats.

They are the lesser of two evils in that definitely. I don't mind butterflies so much, because it's in an open environment and not indoors where I freak out easier.

Wings are what make butterflies pretty, Pike! I like dragonflies better, though.

I don't care for butterflies. As far as insects go, I prefer bees, ladybugs, June bugs...

Those otters in the OP are from the Memphis Zoo. I recognize the wall.

Yeah, you can say that again. (http://youtu.be/x2VQZc8PebA) Nature sure is full of wonders. ;)

Anyway, I like moths and butterflies. It's fun spotting them outside, and many of them are quite beautiful. One of my favourites is the Red Admiral which I see every once in a while in my yard. :)

A butterfly landed on me last month. In fact, two did. I wonder if I am now butterfly pregnant.

I love butterflies. They go excellent with some fava beans and a nice chianti.

I tend to be able to get butterflies to land on my fingers, it's fairly neat when it happens.

Speaking of insects, my work is like fronted with massive rose beds. As a direct result there's always bumble bees around and most of the girls I work with freak out, I normally just sit there ignoring the hell out of them, they're the big fat bumblebees that are genuinely harmless to most people all they want is the pollen from the flowers.

In New Zealand we had swan plants and Monarch butterflies smurfing love swan plants. We had loads of cocoons, caterpillars and butterflies on them every year. I love them because of that. Other butterflies are pretty and all that, but Monarchs are special to me because of how I've grown up surrounded by them.

Last Friday I was walking at work and I saw a butterfly on the road that looked like it had been injured and it made me sad :(
