Can you name these Beesties?

I couldn't identify the tiny jumping spider using a book on British spiders, so I gave the book away. I potted one a year or two ago and gave it to Melvin Grey who took some fearsome macro shots before releasing it. It had a whole battery of glittering eyes and businesslike palps.

The little wasp appears every year. Michal Chinery's excellent book only gives a selection. This one doesn't seem to fit any of his pictures.
