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.

Dog/Wood Tick. Early Summer Wildlife in New Jersey. 

While working on my previous post “Wild Raspberry Cluster” I found this Dog/Wood Tick crawling up my pants leg. I was only outside 10-15 minutes getting the images for the Raspberry Composite.  The only thing more persistent than the ticks this year are the SEO scripters sending me spam comments, especially to my 13-June-2011 post. I do allow and like comments for my postings (especially constructive criticism) as long as they are relevant to the post.
