#4 is a buckeye
#7 is an atlas moth

I've taken pictures of #5 at various butterfly houses but I cannot remember its name.

I believe the buckeye is the only USA native.

Butterfly houses raise mostly tropical butterflies, and most of these appear to be heliconians, which eat passionvines.
The one with the yellow body appears to be a birdwing, from Australia.
The pale colored one with lines is a large tree nymph.
