This Great Blue Heron strikes me as a graphic illustration of our current weather pattern here in the Willamette Valley with nighttime lows in the 20s. The heron stands on a log out of the cold water with one leg tucked up out of the elements. Its normally long neck is some how buried deep into its shoulders. Even its eye is only partially open. I took this photo as Capitol Auto Lake yesterday while having maintenance done on our Scion. Starting at the Toyota store I walked halfway around the lake, then ducked in to the Subaru store to warm up a bit before completing the circle back to the Toyota store.
