I like them, but if you want to shoot more D&Ds you could consider getting a TC or even a longer lens, as you need to get closer. I'm using the 300mm+1.4TC or the Oly 100-400mm, and even then I often crop. The photo below was cropped to 4400x3300 and then resized.

Getting closer physically is also an option, but that often means wet feet. And you'll need even more time and patience, since you'll have to find out what their favourite perch is and then wait for them to land on it, rather than chasing them around. Have a look at this website http://www.dragonflypix.com/, the author claims none of the photos are cropped, and all were taken with a relatively short lens (up to 180mm eq.).
