    I think the first one is a garden tiger moth

    That first one is beautiful. What a lovely set of pix Jacqueline  :)
    Only had a couple of cabbage whites and a little tortie, which was in recently. Usually a bit later for butterflies here.
    I saw a yellow underwing moth last night when I was outside. Get me nut - I'm admiring moths now  ;)
    It's a place where beautiful isn't enough of a word....

    From the top:
    Jersey tiger moth
    Large white (I think)
    Speckled wood
    Small white or maybe a green veined, hard to tell.
