Decent try. Not bothered about the clipped wings but you needed the end of his tail in. Shots like this must be very sharp and I fear yours is rather soft. I suspect camera movement as 1/60 is far too slow at 160mm. I assume you did not use a tripod?

A bit less exposure, a much smaller aperture for depth of field, f16 at least, and more dependence on the flash, which I see you used, for exposure. Not an easy subject, but for close up of insects you must have at least a plane of high sharpness.
