Looks great!  In my untrained bug ID-ing eye, I always just think they look like stoneflies.  I think they would all work for a stonefly pattern where I live.

Hi,

 

thank you very much to all of you :-) ...

 

@ MouseManiac: the best way for ID-ing if it's a mayfly or a stonefly is looking at the tails. Stoneflies have only 2 tails, all of them. Mayflies have 3 of them almost every Species...
