The second moth is Achaea lienardi, one of the more variable moths around.

The first one is a Cream-striped Owl Moth (Cyligramma latona) Family Noctuidae

The second one I don't know without further research, but I strongly suspect it, too, is a member of the Family Noctuidae (the largest and most successful family of moths in the world).
