TODAY'S Photo of the Day comes from Karin Taylor of Lennox Head. Karin is a self-taught macro photographer, which is a photographer whose subject matter is tiny things - in this case a jumping spider she found on her fence in her backyard.

You can see more or Karin's amazing photos here. Karin's also a talented painter. You can see some of her work here.

Karin says she shoots her photos on her iPhone, for which she has a special macro lens.

Photo of the Day is intended to highlight the beauty of the Northern Rivers and the talent of the region's photographers. As well as appearing here, the Photo of the Day is published on Page 2 of our print edition, is used as the cover image on our Facebook page, and appears as part of an expanding gallery of images, which you can see below.

As we receive so many incredible submissions we have now also started running occasional photo spreads within the paper of some of the images that don't get through the voting. We have our second such spread across Pages 6 and 7 of today's paper, featuring images by Diane Lymbury, Amber Fairbairn, Graeme McDonald, Roseanne Birmingham, Craig Stephens, Rosie Kew, Sarah Rickard, Russell Riordan, and Rebecca Ludstrom.

To submit an image for Photo of the Day, just go to our Facebook page and share it.

Now to the voting for tomorrow's photo. It's a big field today with 15 images to choose from. There are some spectacular pictures in there, so it's going to be a difficult choice.

Click the poll link below to vote. You can see bigger versions of the images by hitting the gallery link above the thumbnails or by clicking here.

Voting closes at noon.
