Default 2 dragonflies

I spotted these 2 this morning, anybody know offhand what they are? I normally have lots of dragonflies around here but this year they are sneaky. These aren't real colorful and I can't quite figure out what they are.
Also, do ya'll think that's the sun or my flash in their eyes, didn't notice it till I downloaded the pics, I'm just using the built in flash on my D90 atm

Bil,

these are not dragonflies, but adult ant lions (Myrmeleontidae)

Very nice shots, cheers,

Stefan

Seriously?! That is awesome, I'd never have figured that out on my own, thanks!
