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.

Bullfrog in a Pond. Early Summer in New Jersey.

Image of a bullfrog I took three years ago today while visiting the Sourland Mountain Reserve near my home in New Jersey.  I found this when going back are reviewing some old images. I realized that it was a very productive day, and that I have a lot of other images from the day that I should publish — wildflowers, butterflies, bees, and dragonflies. I need to check the location out this weekend to see what is present this year.
