Great dragonfly ! Don't you find it a bit tense, creeping forward, not knowing when it will take off !

It's why I tend to take a slightly distant photo of insects/dragonflies/butterflies before creeping very carefully forward - you might not get a chance at a close shot so get a grab shot that might at least let you identify it later.

A few more snaps from around Minsmere:

Mandarin chick, have a long way to jump from the box, very cute!
