Panjin, Liaoning, China - two more Butterflies

A couple more new butterflies from this afternoon, September 13, 2017.

These were both tiny. The first three, brown one, is perhaps 2-3 mm long and flew with very fast wing beats like a Hummingbird Moth, except it landed on the flowers to feed. They were fairly numerous.

The fourth, blue butterfly, was even smaller perhaps 1-2 mm long. It flew about rapidly and constantly and I was not able to get a picture until I took a break from #1 and turned around to see one right behind me.

I would appreciate any help with an ID on either.

First 3 are moths. From image 2+3 would say Eastern Bordered Straw.

The last flutter in my opinion is a Short-tailed Blue (Cupido argiades).

Ah, yes, that does seem to match up well. Thanks, Dev. Not listed in my sole reference, Butterflies of the World, but pointed me to what to look at online.

It is proving harder to learn than birding. There is some really good online sites, but almost entirely focused on Britain or the USA. Guess I really should have taken some more Biology at university and should have taken the local priests offer for Latin classes. That didn't get parental approval.
