    the top one is one of the small blues. Considering your spot in central france and the time of year, it's probably a common blue, but tough to say unless you see the inside of the wings as well.
    The second looks like a spotted fritillary, or maybe, if it was bigger (about small tortoiseshell size) then a high brown frit, but def a fritillary anyway!
    Third is easier. A Gatekeeper.
    Finally, Its so pale it has to be the scarce swallowtail. If it was much darker cream than your photo looks, then maybe simply a Swallowtail.

    Great pics btw!

    Those pics look really good and bokeh looks amazing - Have they been tweaked at all or are they straight out of the camera.
    I think my next lens is going to be the Canon 100mm f2.8L Macro IS USM.

    Thanks for the info John, the depth of knowledge on this forum is amazing. The last one is a paleish cream, but there seemed to be a fair few of them, mind you it might have been the same few over and over again. I'll look at the colour again, it's hard here as the laptop screen is not calibrated and not easy to see in the light.

    Thanks for the positive comments Matt. They were taken as raw files so they have been through Camera Raw and have had some adjustment to levels, contrast etc, but nothing radical. The lens is excellent, but, allegedly, the latest version with IS and L designation is even better - though more costly. The original version makes a great used buy.

    Very heavily cropped as I had the wrong lens in, wasn't thinking of butterflies and was trying to take some landscape pics.

    No idea what type it is either

    ^ I'm fairly sure its a Meadow Brown .

    There seems to be life in this thread after all, great effort so far everybody. Considering I post a few insect photos I'm finding Butterflies very hard to snap. We have a Red Admiral or two in the garden but I can't get the bugger.

    Wow! Can't wait to get my hands on one of these. Would rather pay more for the IS because I nearly always shoot handheld.

    Though strictly not a butterfly, I took it at the same time as the butterflies I've posted above. I've no idea what it is, but it is about 2cm long and it's wings never stop moving - rather like a humming bird, and it flits about very quickly.

    Can anyone identify it?

    There must have been about 20 Peacocks on the giant Buddleia today, still couldn't get a sharp image.

    I'm no expert but It looks to me like the aperture was too wide to get the whole thing in focus.

    trouble was the bush was swaying and the butterflies were constantly moving, really difficult.

    That doesn't help.
    I was thinking about having another bash at this but i'd feel a bit embarrassed if the neighbours saw me chasing butterflies around the garden.
