As the thread title suggests, these are my first attempts at macro photography.
I don't know the species of any of these, but I am curious about what the Dragonfly looking one is. C&C welcome

Wow, great first attempts!
The last one looks like a robber fly to me, the first two seem to be some Araneus species, and the one on the red leaves could be some sort of crab spider, but I am not sure at all....
