Is it normal to be afraid of butterflies?
I'm terrified of them. Every time I ask someone about it they'll say something like "I'm afraid of moths." Moths are fine, even if they gross me out just a little like any other bug. Sometimes they're even cute, especially the fuzzy ones. But I'll run away from a butterfly if one flies near me. Sometimes moths too, but only if they remind me of butterflies or the wing shape is creepy.
I think the way they fly around is unpredictable and scary, and if I'm looking at a picture or even cartoon drawing of one the wing shape makes me really uncomfortable. I hate butterflies. I think they're beautiful, but I have a deep fear of them.
