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.


Today — New Jersey

I finally spotted a Clearwing Hummingbird Moth today at the Sourland Mountain Preserve. The Fuji X-T1 does not focus as fast as my Nikon camera bodies, but I was able to get two images before it flew off. It was extracting nectar from a Blue Chicory flower. In the past I have found them working the Thistle blooms. Summer Nature in New Jersey. Images taken with a Fuji X-T1 camera and 100-400 mm OIS lens.
