We report on the first experimental observation of dynamic localization of light in two-dimensional photonic lattices. We demonstrate suppression of beam diffraction in hexagonal lattices created by weakly coupled waveguides with axis bending. We also reveal that this effect is strongly related to dynamic localization in zigzag waveguide arrays with next-nearest neighboring interactions.
