    Glowstone butterflies that follow you would be cool and great for caving.

    I also vote for Mothra

    Bees pollinate trees in Forestry, but Forestry hasn't done anything with flowers yet... So maybe Butterflies pollinate Flowers, and there are new types of flowers that you have to cross pollinate to obtain? Also an use for the massive flower fields that get created when doing a whole lot of bee breeding. EXBL and other mods already added a bunch of flowers for many of the dyes, but there are a bunch that don't have flowers yet. Some flowers could also give other useful but not terribly expensive or hard to acquire resources. Or that boost bee production rates. As, you know, bees get their nutrition from processing nectar. Or that makes crops around them grow faster... Flowers that create a healing effect, or that give off light. Really, the possibilities are pretty endless. Also hoping for a cosmetic wall decoration to pin butterflies to.

    Make sheep eat flowers, too. Hehe.

    INDEEEEED I really would like to see some more flowers and stuff like Emerald Flowers , hard to acquire but if u collect their petals on growth u can craft them into nugget shape (Cuz it would be OP if u could straight forward get emeralds)

    This would be awesome.

    Also, butterfiles that follow you and provide you with buffs. Regen, speed, etc.

    But whatever Sengir decides to do with them, I'm sure it will be great. Looking forward to playing with them. :]

    Chrissy .... fishes swim around derpy and if got out of water , you just lost a kind of fish ,
    Whilst butterflies flies around peacefully and might derp a bit but not till death.

    I would love to be able to use Butterflies!

    Sengir, you can make bottles so we can grow caterpillar - Butterfly

    You'd have to put in leaves (different sort for diff butterflies) and water and sugar.

    You could even put honey + water in

    You know how the system of breeding is so tiered, as in, you need bees to get trees to get butterflies?
    Butterflies to get flowers.
    The flowers will attract new flies which you can breed to get better flies that you can feed to...
    Fish!
    That you can breed.
    So...
    1. Bees
    2. Trees
    3. Butterflies
    4. Flowers
    5. Flies
    6. Fish!

    why the hell would you want to breed fish.. what could you possibly get out of it?

    "YES! I bred my uberfish to give me 5 hearts of hunger rather than 3! Suck it butterflies!"

    "my butterflies give me regen II for 20 seconds..."

    I'd like if fish actually did something, or were worth more than just being trade fodder for villagers.
