Monarch Butterflies fly around just above the ground and are one of many insects found living in Skyrim.

To catch one, walk up to it and 'harvest' them in the same way that other ingredients are harvested. Two butterfly wings are collected and added to the Dragonborn's inventory.


  • Found in the more temperate regions of Skyrim.


  • The butterfly's wings are reversed from the way they should be; the pointed wings are supposed to be near the insect's head.
