Default Anybody identify these bugs?

These were all over the place this weekend in Connecticut. I'm not sure what they are but they were hovering around the river. Three different bugs. Click the image to open in full size.Click the image to open in full size.Click the image to open in full size.Click the image to open in full size.

I was thinking four different bugs. Not sure the first one is a little black caddis. #2 is. We have one around here that has a light wing and a dark gray body. Might be grannom.

1 and 2 are the same bug. I should have been more clear.
