To start off you have to find the butterflies. Look on the side of the road, around ditch’s and where you see wildflowers. If you walk in the early morning or late evening they will not be moving as fast. If you have flowers in your yard, you may have butterflies flying around already.
I have wildflower gardens to keep my butterflies happy. They love Zinnia’s and they love my Mimosa trees. The smaller butterflies are mostly low on the ground around patches of grass. Some also like mud damp soil. Check around ponds and such. Some like rotting fruit. Check around your fruit trees too.
