  7. The second is a Crane Fly, sometimes known as Daddy Long Legs. It only has 1 pair of wings where a dragonfly has 2.

  13. Oh he's definitely not a moth. He's a Speckled Wood Butterfly (Pararge aegeria). Pretty mini beast. :)

  15. Excellent close-up shots. The last one shows how the protective coloration of the butterfly works.
