Ken- I am most appreciative f
Ken- I am most appreciative for you identification as, Syritta pipiens
. From the previous BG submissions of this species it appears your ID is identical with my submission. This is my 2nd submission today which you have rendered an ID. I will attempt to re-locate this species tomorrow and acquire additional profiles.

Thank You

 
I'd also say S. pipiens
The easy way to tell these is by the "saw teeth" on the underside of the rear leg. They're readily visible in Ken's example. (I'd frass the third photo as it adds nothing.)
