If you're in the US, the best books for butterflying birders are the new 
Kaufman Focus Guide: Butterflies of North America 
( and Jeff Glassberg's Butterflies 
Through Binoculars series (

Good starting points for web sites include:

Butterflies of North America


The International Lepidoptera Survey

North American Butterfly Association (NABA)

And there are a bunch more links here:
