Found Insects - Some Kinds of Beetle

Are you familiar with insects in Ontario, Canada? I've found, and photographed a few recently, and can't seem to find any images that lead to a positive identification except for the spider.

Here's a nice pic of a beetle found near my tomato plants. It looks similar to a leaf-footed bug, but I'm not sure what it is. Squash bug?

Next is another unknown beetle. Looks similar to pics of a Soldier Beetle, or possibly Pennsylvania Leatherwing. What do you think?

The third pic is totally unknown to me. I've never seen anything like it, although I suppose it kind of resembles a damselfly. It was also found on tomato plants.

The final pic was actually the first find, but I've already found a name for it. It is a Venusta orchard spider (Leucauge venusta). I found it hanging out upside down, between a tree and fence.
