Lovely captures. I call these signal flies. Sepsidae probably Sepsis species.

Beautiful light and details!
#1 works better for me.

Nit - the images seem slightly "warm"?

Thanks for the comments.

Re color balance, they might have a green cast. They were shot by diffused flash, and sometimes the light takes on the predominant color of the scene. I will have a look.

Removed some yellow and added a touch of magenta. It does look better on my monitor.
