These are good shots.
I assume they are the same specimen. If so, you can click "tag" on both of them, and they will appear on the left frame of your window. Then, if you click "link," they will be linked together. If you want to add them to the guide, you can go to the images tab of the family page mentioned by Eric, and then you can "move tagged images" to put them into the guide.

Not stonefly.
Not a stonefly, but an antlion, family Myrmeleontidae, order Neuroptera.

And a beauty at that!

Ooops! Thanks for the correction. Could it be Vella or Paranthaclisis congener?
