As usual, apologies for the horrid quality of the images, but google should be able to give you a better idea of what these photogenic creatures look like in more ideal situations!
Owl fly - Note the suuuper long, butterfly-like antennae:
Antlion - a larger than average individual:
Lower left is the lacewing - somehow it was never cornered for a solo portrait session:

^^ the mantis fly was filmed in Tarrant Co, everything else was Alpine, Brewster Co. So many good bugs out there, so many amazingly excellent bugs...
* video to be embedded at some point!
Edit: more [bad] photos!
