Do flowers like butterflies as much as butterflies like flowers ?

I'd say yes. I've never interviewed a flower, but you know plants grow flowers for the purpose of attracting insects to pollenate them!
I saw this National Geographic special years ago about all the things different plants do to attract insects. One species has a gizmo on their flowers that looks like a female wasp, to attract male wasps! That's pretty damn clever for a plant, don't you think?

We simply don't know. They do benefit from butterfly pollination.
