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.

  1. Oh, I feel for that butterfly! Isn't it strange how it affects me like that because it's a pretty butterfly?
    Still; great find and captures! Thanks for sharing with +Buggy Lunch! 🙂

    +Kim Sinclair The Eastern Tiger Swallowtail is the most prevalent butterfly right now. For some reason they land on the thistle flowers, whereas the clearwing hummingbird moths and black swallowtail butterflies hover for a quick getaway.
