Moths, bugs and butterflies

This time of year is somewhat quiet for bird pics so there is a tendency to shift attention to other things. I've been busy with family activities and a friends wedding, I have only managed to get a few shots.

I do not know the name of this beetle but I'm guessing someone out there does and can let me know. I'm guessing its a long horn of some kind.

This is a gate keeper butterfly, There were lots of them.

Flies have always caused me concern, I guess it was watching the movie as a youngster that first made me dislike them.

Okay here's another query, can anyone help me with this. I don't think it's meant to be this colour, I think its one of the blues? Am i right? I'm guessing it was newly emerged.

Another long horn I don't doubt, I'm being lazy aren't I? I should find out for myself. Okay I'll set myself a challenge.

I've got commitments again this week for my son so not much will get photographed this week either, I'll update asap.
