These are some other insect photos from KNP that are kind of just a shot in the dark if anyone knows, it would be great.

Darth,

#4 above appears to be a Lacewing. I believe it's either Green (Chrysoperla) or Yellow Lacewing (Ceratochrysa antica) The Yellow Lacewing is relatively large with a wingspan of approximately 37mm, while the Green is smaller with a 24mm wingspan. Both can be found in KNP.

Hi Normana,

Thank you so much for that information. I think based on the sized the second ID would be Green Lacewing.

Cheers!
Brian
