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

Monarch Butterfly at the Sourland Mountain Preserve. Summer Nature in New Jersey. Image taken with a Nikon D810a camera and 500 mm f/4 VR lens (ISO 200, 500 mm, f/4, 1/3200 sec).

This is my first Monarch image of the season. For the last two days I saw a Monarch butterfly, but it never stayed still long enough to have its picture taken.

    +Shelly Gunderson I hope to see more this season. So far they are few and far between and are not stopping to feed on the Thistle flowers or Joe Pye weed.
