Photo of the day (12.01.08)

“Oh run run run so you don’t fall in!” is what I’d be saying if I was watching this heron doing what it’s doing above. Such a great shot of the bird (known to be a “wading bird”) that looks like it’s walking on water, and has to walk really fast to make it to the other side without falling in!

Taken by flickr user LadyExpat in Daejeon in South Korea, it’s certainly a hard moment to catch so well.

Have any pictures capturing the beauty of animals in their natural habitat? Add them to our Gadling photo pool on Flickr and we might just pick it as our Photo of the Day.
