Good pictures. I have had good luck with this lens in the close-up mode, too.

I haven't found the wasps (haven't looked yet) or surprisingly the skimmer, which looks distinctive enough, but the scarab is a Flower Beetle Trigonopeltastes delta - very distinctive.

Edit: The first wasp may be a Digger Wasp Scolia dubia , and the second some kind of Potter or Mason Wasp (can't find the exact one).
