David Mathre Photography

Welcome to my Images of the Day Photo blog. My goal is to post images from each day of the year going back to 2006 when I got my first DSLR camera. Images I post on Google+ are also forwarded to this Photo blog. I am a retired chemist that worked nearly thirty years in the Pharmaceutical industry. I took my first DSLR camera on a road trip across the United States, and became hooked, with my new passion becoming a photographer. I now spend all my time traveling and taking pictures. Since then I have visited over 50 countries, many on Semester at Sea voyages. My photographic interests include travel, the natural world, landscapes, and photographic techniques. I always want to learn something new and the only way to become better is to learn from mistakes.

Autumn in New Jersey

Turkey Vulture soaring. The population of Turkey Vultures has increased significantly since the state quit picking up road killed deer. This is both hunting and rutting season so we have many deer running across roads and being hit by automobiles.

Robin feasting on fall “bittersweet” berries. I don’t know if this robin plans to winter, or is feasting before flying south. Image taken with a Nikon D3s and 300 mm f/2.8 lens with a TC-2.0 III teleconverter (ISO 1600, 600mm, f/5.6, 1/640 sec, hand-held).

    Is that bittersweet? If it is I your yard what are the chances of getting some? The bunch Mary set years ago is getting pretty ratty. Mom

    I didn’t know what the berries were. When I looked up bittersweet, it looks like it. This time of the year, when the orange-red berry is exposed (some) of the birds that winter over will eat them. Normally, the birds eat the wild grapes first. The vines are invasive and are taking over several of my trees. If they are still around I will try to bring some down for Christmas. At least they are not the poison ivy vines. DJM
