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.

Turkey Vultures. Autumn Nature in New Jersey.

I saw this flock of Turkey Vultures warming themselves in the early morning sun. The population of Turkey Vultures has increased over the past several years. I think their major food source is road killed deer.

    I have also noticed a lot more turkey vultures in my area. That first reminds me of “The Birds.”
