    Im not thinking a female mosquito for the second one because the females are the only ones that bite, this being said, they have some type of probiscus to do the biting with. I dont see this in the picture. Also, they are generally much much smaller than the males in size and this one lokos pretty big to be a female. Just my thoughts. Don't hesitate to tell me if I am wrong about this particular species.

    It looks maybe like some species of Dragonfly? The head and wings are very reminiscent.

    +1 on the harvestman. Not too sure about the mayfly though. I googled it and none of them looked like that. Heres a link to one that I found.

    I could be wrong though.
