its hard to tell from so far away can you get a closer pic? the easiest way to tell is if the dorsal fin is rounded, its a female. if its long and pointy its a male. the picture of the last one is a female

1 is female, 2 is male, 3 looks female but not 100% a closer pic would help to know for sure. the dorsal fin isn't the only way to tell, females will have more girth and a rounder body
