This dragonfly followed me around all morning as I walked up and down the banks of the Neuse River in Raleigh. I finally decided that I should take his picture, but then he wouldn’t sit still long enough. I was finally able to get a good picture, but I had to follow him around for a little while to do it. It was a little role-reversal. For the most part, bugs are a non-issue as you canoe, kayak, or stand up paddle board down the Neuse River.
