Who is this guy? UK

Anyone have any idea what kind of fly this is? Is it a type of mosquito? I found larve in some water in a plant pot but I thought that would only be mosquitos and it looks slightly different.

Found this red damselfly in the PNW. Is this an unusual color morph?

This was my first time seeing a red one. I’ve only ever seen blue or brown ones throughout my life. I’m struggling to find a species that matches in color and markings. Is this an unusual morph? This was taken last summer in my wild flower garden near my pond.

Tiny flying bugs in house?

I’ve been noticing these tiny bugs all over my house. At first I thought fruit flies because we have had them before but they are typically located near the source but these are just scattered. They are only in drinks if a drink is left untouched for even 20 minutes 95% of the time you can find a bug thing in it. I don’t see them flying but they just end up in drinks. Please help!

Is this a ladybug or an asian lady beetle?

Or it could be something else, those are just my two guesses based on a quick google search. I know nothing about bugs. There’s this one in my room and 5 are hanging out in my bathroom by the shower window. Which bug is this and should I be concerned/trying to move them outside? I’m in northern Virginia/ near DC for geographic location.

Dragonfly Aquarium?

While taking the dog out for his morning walk, we noticed a dragonfly laying her eggs on the rear windshield of my girlfriends car. The glass was covered in dew. I gathered some up and placed them in a zip lock bag filled with filtered water before the dew evaporated. Any ideas on if these would hatch and the larvae would survive in a small aquarium? From my limited internet searching, it looks like they could eat brine shrimp if they hatched. I am fairly positive the eggs were from a Giant Hawaiian dragonfly.

What is this insect?

It's the third one I found in my flat. Should I be worried?
