I like the last two, also. the first one looks a bit oof on the droplets and the lighting is a little harsh, but they're great if your new to macro :)

how come you've been here 6 years and only done 65 posts?

Yup it's the same with a macro lens.

Welcome to macro. 2&3 are nice, w/ good lighting. I think what doesn't work for #1 is where the focus is. The composition draws your eye to the center of the flower, but its OOF. Then your eye has to go to the opposite side of the frame to find something in focus. So to draw attention to the water drops would have required a different composition. Have fun practicing.
