That's sad. I've not seen that happen with garden spiders. Lesser garden spiders (Metellina) yes, but not garden spiders

In the lower picture it looks distinctly flattened compared to other orb weavers of a similar size, e.g. garden spider, in my opinion. But a female full of eggs isn't going to be wafer thin.

It's a walnut orb weaver, Nuctenea umbratica. The bottom picture shows a dorsal view. Amongst other features, the stout leg spines should have dissuaded anyone from identifying it as a Steatoda

The first is a salticid but there are a few with that two stripe pattern on the abdomen. Maybe Icius hamatus?
The fourth is a Micaria species, probably M. pulicaria.

Assuming this is a UK species then a fence post jumper, Marpissa muscosa. It looks to be on a fence post appropriately.
But if it was outside the UK then I don't know

The head doesn't look the right shape for a Phyllobius. Some Sitona species look similar, but I'm no expert. Certainly not a vine weevil.

It looks like a bug of some sort, probably a nymph. Some assassin bugs (Reduviidae) disguise themselves like this but I can't tell from these photos if that's what it is.

Clubiona sp., probably C. comta.

It differs from an Amaurobius in the shape/colour of the cephalothorax (the front body segment) and the central mark on the abdomen.
