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 (29-May-2017) — New Jersey

This morning there were two very large woodpeckers working a tree in my backyard. When I checked the pictures in my National Audubon Field Guide I was able to identify these as Pileated Woodpeckers. I hope they stick around for awhile so I can get some closer pictures. These images were taken with a Nikon D4 camera and 500 mm f/4 VR lens, and are zoomed in as 100% crops. Later on when I was cooking dinner, I saw Harvey the rabbit in my wildflower garden. The electric fence only has wires at levels to keep the deer out. I may have to add a lower wire — or hope that there are more wildflowers than Harvey can eat.
