Moths

I found these moths this evening, I dont know what they are, except for the tiny Wasp moth sharing a flower with a bee. If you know please tell me! Thanks to Martin who investigated and found out that the bluish one is a Common Grass-blue butterfly, I am so pleased Martin, how wonderful to have friends to help! Inspired by Martin I have discovered that the large moth is definitely a Hawk Moth, but I have not found an exact match yet.
