Lovely series Pri.
Think #1 is a Tephritid fly and #5/6 is either a flying ant or a wasp.

note the little Exuviae to the right of the Weevil; are you sure its a weevil, I think I see a wing bug and weevils don't have a nymph stage, they undergo complete metamorphosis like all beetles. Abdominal pattern reminds me of some Psocid species.

Thanks Andres! I noticed the harsh light on the last one, maybe the exp. correction was not enough! I am currently using a Yongnuo YN468 flash on a friction arm and I use a "can diffuser"! I will be upgrading my light gear soon ; I already ordered a canon 470 exII and I am looking forward to get a second one in a near future! :)

I saw that little bug on the right but didn't know what it was! I am not sure if it's a weevil Toby! Thanks for all these explanation, will help in the future!
