Butterfly survey - chez nous

As regular readers of our blog will know, we should by now have completed a couple of surveys for this year's STERF butterfly study. However, until a couple of days ago the weather has been against us and we are still waiting to do our first survey for 2012.

In the meantime we've been able to photograph one or two beauties in the garden and in one of the little plastic greenhouses we've had seedlings in..

Here's a couple from the past few days.

The Orange tip (Anthocharis cardamines)

The Wall Brown (Lasiommata petropolitana)

And lastly, one which we haven't been able to identify with any degree of certainty.. The vegetation gives an idea of scale.

This tiny little thing is possibly a moth?? Any help with identification gratefully received!

Number 3 is a moth and I can't remember the name. When I get home I'll tell you for sure.
