There are a number of different odonata activities and their actions vary by species.  For example, the Saddlebags seem to want the highest position with good visibility.  You are usually going to get shots from underneath them.

When dropping eggs, they won't stay at rest for very long and will vary location a lot.

During hunting, they will often return to the same perch.  If you observe them for a while and see this behavior, you can move slowly closer each time they fly away.  Eventually, they will consider you part of the environment and ignore you.
