I quite like the crop of the damselfly! All in all it is a very nice photo with its strong composition being one of its best strengths. I like the strong line of the grass blade and how it exits in the corner. Having done the odd insect shot I know how difficult they can be.
That said, I would like a touch more depth of field here -- or a different point of sharpest focus. I find the closest eye to be just a tad too out of focus for me. A bit more depth of field might have kept the rear legs in focus too. (Conversely, I would be just as happy with significantly more of the subject out of focus so as to highlight a specific feature)
I also find the light a little harsh on the right facing sides of both insects.
