"Ron's old Shooting Star was often outstripped by passing butterflies."
—Ron's Shooting Star's description[src]

The butterfly is a creature with the ability to fly. They are related to moths, and it have four states in life: egg, pupa, larva and adult.

In 1991 some butterflies could be found near Rubeus Hagrid's cabin.[1]

In 1993, shortly after Rubeus Hagrid was sent to Azkaban and Albus Dumbledore was suspended as Headmaster of Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry, Harry Potter and Ronald Weasley had to follow some spiders to which Ron protested and asked why Hagrid didn't say Follow the butterflies.

In 1994 when Beauxbatons Academy of Magic arrived at Hogwarts to participate in the Triwizard Tournament the beautiful Beauxbatons students conjured some blue butterflies. Additionally, as the students of Hogwarts prepared to meet the Beauxbatons and Durmstrang delegations, Parvati Patil wore a large ornamental butterfly on the end of her plait, but Professor McGonagall found it "ridiculous" and made her remove it.[2]

Ron Weasley once had an old Shooting Star broomstick, which was so slow that it often was outstripped by butterflies.

On 1 August, 1997, butterflies and bees were hovering lazily over the grass and hedgerow on the property of The Burrow as the Wedding of Bill Weasley and Fleur Delacour kicked off.[3]

Later that year, when Harry and Hermione Granger visited an abandoned electrical substation on their mission to destroy horcruxes, butterflies were seen flying around in the area.
