I browsed through the insect pictures but I am not very good at what things I am looking for that separate the different types of bugs. Can anyone tell me what this is??? Also, pics of a nice brookie and brown.

Definitely looks like Stenonema vicarium (new name Maccaffertium vicarium) - also called March Brown. Nice photos!
