Please explain exactly what you are trying to do. Whatever your code is doing is not clear. I can tell that you want the picture to move but I need to know how you want it to move.

i want a code that would make my butter flymove without using the keyboard.

the if statements are used for the moving of the picture. the rest of the program just makes the butter fly move its wings.

The following code bounces the picturebox left and right between two limits. You can modify this to move the butterfly in random directions.

Public Class Form1

    Private increment As Integer = -1

    Private Sub Form1_Load(sender As System.Object, e As System.EventArgs) Handles MyBase.Load

        Timer1.Interval = 10
        Timer1.Start()

    End Sub

    Private Sub Timer1_Tick(sender As System.Object, e As System.EventArgs) Handles Timer1.Tick

        pbx1.Location = New Point(pbx1.Location.X + increment, pbx1.Location.Y)

        'reverse direction if we reached a limit

        If pbx1.Location.X = 10 Or pbx1.Location.X = 400 Then
            increment = -increment
        End If

    End Sub

End Class

I don't know why you need so many timers. As far as I can tell you only need one to animate the wings (cycle through a series of images) and one to move the image around. You could have a separate Sub which does nothing but calculate the next position based on some pseudo-random algorithm. If you wanted to get fancy you could create a butterfly class (object) and encapsulate the code and properties. That way it would be easy to generate multiple butterflies.
