With our 2nd challenge voting, up and underway, it's now time to announce the new challenge theme for the next 2 weeks.

This fortnight's theme is macro.
Get out there and snap things up close and teeny! (or big whichever way you look at it hehe)

Submissions are the same as the previous challenges.
All photos are due by Thursday, August 7th and we will try to have them posted with your voting options on Friday, August 8th. Please send submissions to photochallenge@thephotoforum.com .

Thanks kids, and Happy Snapping!

Nooo, I have no macro thingies. I tried reversing my normal by just holding it backwards. Umm, yeah right... that worked. Sigh. I will have to buy a reverser.

The spider is a wolf spider and he was as big as my hand when he walked onto it. They aren't deadly but can cause a nasty bite wound and in some cases necrosis. My weapon of choice is an Olympus C-730 Ultra Zoom (i love the 10x optical).

As well as the venomous spiders, we also have 8 of the top 10 deadliest snakes in the world including the No. 1, The Fierce snake (hence the name).
I won't start on the vicious Koalas, Wombats and Kangaroos.
