You have managed some nice photographs, but ID can still be tricky.
1. From the view shown it is most likely a female member of the "Skimmer" family (Libellula ?sp.) could be a Yellow-sided, Golden-winged, Needham's Skimmer all are native to VA.
2. A Holloween Pennant (Celithemis eponina) male
3. A Great Blue Skimmer (Libellula vibrans) female.
4. Another Great Blue Skimmer female, I think the color difference is largely due to age.
5. Blue Dasher (Pachydiplax longipennis) male
Hope this helps.
