Hello and welcome Hans, and thank you for posting these photo's!

Both are of moths (nachtvlinders) rather than butterflies (dagvlinders), which is why I've moved this topic. Both belong in the family Erebidae, but as my laptop is currently being repaired, I can't access my files to dig up the exact names. I will post the full name of the first and at least the genus name of the second (which is more difficult to ID to species level) when I got my laptop back.

Cheers, Auke

P.S.: in the future, please open a new topic for each species; it helps keeping the forum searchable. ;)
