That second one is good, and the backgrounds are excellent. I do however question the colour of the subject. I think that your flash may just have taken the edge off the azure blue of the damselfly. It is only a minor point but one worth considering.

Try them in natural light and see if there is a discernable difference.

I wonder if it's a teneral specimen (immature). They can be pinkish, although I admit I get thoroughly confused by the blue damselflies.
I agree with all the other comments. Nice work!

Great shots, Alex!

I agree with Alan that somewhat pale colors because they´re still teneral (or maybe the correct way to say that they are not just yet mature, but close) as I don´t see much of a difference in colors and #1 is shot without a flash...

I like #1 very much, nice clean natural look, just as it should be...and good compo...
