Don't resist, let's see!
Just three (Ron set the rules) and I will try to be law abiding!

These were all from a very pleasant part of France - the Tarn and Garonne. Very rural, lots of butterflies. Firstly a mating pair of Cinquefoil skippers.

Then to go with Beagletorque's clouded yellow a Berger's clouded yellow (could possibly be a pale clouded yellow but I think more likely Berger's)

to finish this set is a long-tailed blue

Sorry to say none of these would be seen in England, except very rarely long-tailed blues. They have been seen as very rare migrants when the weather conditions have blown them over the channel.

Enough from me. Somebody else please show us what you have.
