Beesly is leash bound. That's difficult for a Beagle. That's also difficult for a photographer.
A Blue Heron makes a rare up close sighting - but there's no sneaking up on fowl when you have a hound dog at your feet.
The reason Beesly is leash bound? I put up a post recently about her mysteriously falling into a small space of water down at Bill's Boathouse. I was glad she was ok - at the time.... Beesly developed a limp. We've taken her to the vet and apparently she's popped her knee-cap out of place (!!!)... Seems like a big deal to me - but the vet didn't seem too concerned. He said to keep her on a leash (no running, juking, dodging, chasing.... all things a Beagle does best)... So she get's a good long walk per day.
