If anything, shoot wider, you can always crop later. In this photo, you cropped out part of the dragonflys wings, and with the dragonfly as the main subject, you therefore lost much of the interest of this photo.

That dragonfly is really beautiful though, wow those colors!

definately, a wider shot would have helped here.

did you happen to get any more angles before it flew off?

i agree... you have plenty of space where you don't need it (i.e. below and behind the dragon) but you clipped the wings!..

it could use a bit of sharpening as well...
