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.

More Creepy Crawlers — Scutigera Coleoptrata (house centipede). 

Thanks to the Internet, I was able to identify this bug crawling up the wall. It is a Scutigera Coleoptrata, aka house centipede — and not a Silverfish. Apparently these eat other bugs including Silverfish in the house. This one is missing part of its right front antenna, and three of its right front legs.
