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.

Hummingbird.

While in the San Francisco area I had the opportunity to visit and have dinner with a couple of  former colleagues that now live in the Bay Area. In the back yard one of their Yucca plant was blooming. There was a humming bird working the flowers. I never got a picture of the humming bird in the flowers, but did capture a sillouete of it in the some other trees. These images were all taken with a Leica X1 or D-Lux 5 camera.
