This pretty Atlas moth seems friendly enough. I'd love to see one of these up close.

I'm sort of... Afraid of everything flying... Moths, butterflies, odonata, bees, wasps. My first memory after my birth was being stung by a stupid bee. It obviously left a subconscious fear to anything resembling that silly one. Hell, I'm even freaked out by bumblebees.

EDIT: Obviously I'm not afraid of mosquitos or flys, but anything else.. Well.

EDIT #2: Birds are fine. Except parrots, they usually call me names.

When I was young I watched a kid run home past me after he got stung by a bunch of bees. Probably stepped on a ground nest. Kinda freaked me out a bit. Ever since I avoid bees like the plague. I know I get honey out of them, and they help our plants, but seriously though. Why did the man upstairs have to make insects anyway :p

When I was a child, I tried to "rescue" a drowning bee. In addition to the pain, imagine my shock and disappointment when the thing decided to sting me! (No good deed goes unpunished!) (crs)

No, that's Chinese. It's a very common mistake.

Well, the fact that we kill them might have something to do with it.

Or perhaps it's a conspiracy.

I think it was because people deployed artillery, jet fighters, and other nasty things against Mothra in those old movies...
