I see just flies in bug2 photo. There might be aphids in the other two photos but I can't be sure.
For homeowners, recommended products for controlling insect pests on ornamentals are cyfluthrin (sold as BioAdvanced Vegetable and Garden Insect Spray, Insecticide), bifenthrin (sold as Ortho Bug B Gon) and carbaryl (sold as Sevin). Be sure to read and follow all instructions on the label before using any pesticide.

The flies are probably not plant pests, they are resting on the leaves.
