This spring my daughter and I had a fun time catching butterflies! We were quite excited they were landing on us. I love her smile in this picture!
We have three butterfly bushes and they doing great this year, a real treat. There also are many more plants that will attract them. Here's a link with more:

The wildflowers in my front yard this year were outstanding. Provided the butterflies with a rest stop and a little snack along the way.

Every year there are a number of butterflies that come to our garage to . . . mingle. It's quite captivating to see them flying all about! My youngest son was intense on making sure the birds didn't get any to snack on!
Butterflies seen on vacation. I took them when my nineteen year old son and I went into the butterfly and plants house at the zoo in Terra Haute, Indiana last summer.
I went camping this past weekend up in northern Arizona. Butterflies were everywhere.

Fabulous. We just added some butterfly bushes and have drawn 2 butterflies to the yard -- a monarch and a white one. Here's more on what to plant to attract them:
Beautiful! I spotted a blue butterfly that has been hanging around feeding on the hummingbird feeders. So pretty to watch. (08/16/2009)
