Three Unidentified Types of Beetle – Wadi Thee Ghazal

Whilst birding the dry wadi at the edge of Wadi Thee Ghazal I came across three types of beetle species I have not seen in Saudi Arabia before. One type of beetle was in a tall flowering tree with many together with another type of beetle either attacking or enjoying the company of this beetle. The third type of beetle was seen on a flowering plant. If anyone has any idea of the identification of these beetles I would be very happy to hear from you.
