About this mod

"Skyrim was once the land of many butterflies. Now... they're baaaaaaack!" ESL adds many diverse and beautiful insects.

Permissions and credits
* Patches for CACO, Apothecary and Useful Alteration.  Everything is .esl-flagged.
   If you want bugs in jars to have a vanilla buzz, just skip the 2 sound files. 

Beautify your game world without surrendering a precious esp slot.

5 lovely new butterflies and one nocturnal moth are introduced. 
You determine proliferation by selecting one of 3 main versions.

There are now 8 types, instead of just 3 and they travel over a larger area
No additional spawn points have been added.

The wings of each can be harvested as potent alchemical ingredients. 
Vanilla critters should not be affected, except that you may find more of them. 

Adapted from Butterfly Improved by zzjay using modified meshes from Wiseman303's LE Critter Fixes.
Thanks to aceofpie for creating the patch for Apothecary.
