Easiest way would be to email it to yourself from one device and open it on the other then you can long press the image and save image.

You can also you Airdop which is new to iOS. You can Google how to use that. It is more difficult to set up than the first method.

You can save to the cloud somewhere (dropbox etc...) and open it on either device and save it.

You can also turn on photostream on both devices and it all your photos will be shared amongst your devices.

Easiest way is to just turn on Photostream and iCloud on both devices. This way when you take a picture on your iPhone it automatically shows up on your iPad as well and vice-versa.

Photostream will work with new pictures, but if they're already taken then it might not work. You can use email, iMessage, dropbox, or onedrive. If both devices are newer, then use Airdrop.

With iPhone and iPad, you usually need to use the iTune to do the transfer of data, which is the best option. However, there's iCloud that you can transfer all these data from iPhone to your iPad, but you will have to use the same account for the iCloud to do that.

All the others suggestion is good, but you have to manually do it, which is very time consuming. On top of that, you might easily miss some of the data, unless is just some selective data that you want to pick to transfer.

Hope this help.

I think the email option is the easiest, especially for just one picture.

Some who are commenting here seem to be losing track of what the OP really asked.

Photo stream and storing the photos on the iCloud is the easiest.
