Photo of the Day (4.26.09)

I’ve always dreamed of visiting the Mayan ruins of Central America, so Flickr user pirano’s image from Copan immediately caught my eye. Deep in the jungle of countries like Honduras and Guatemala lie the remains of huge temples, ballcourts and statues, scattered across a number of separate sites. This particular specimen has quite the fearsome visage, wouldn’t you say? Pirano mentions he is a “snake-charming monkey king” in his description. How about that snake coming out of his mouth? Creepy.

Do you have any photos from Copan you’d like to see featured on Gadling? Or maybe just from Columbus, Ohio? Why not add them to our Gadling group on Flickr? We might just pick one of yours as our Photo of the Day.
