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 (01-Jun-2017) — New Jersey

The yucca plants have started putting up the flower stalks. I have a real problem with deer nibbling on the shoots before the flowers can even open. Last year I wired yellow plastic grocery store bags, sort of to act as scarecrows. It sort of worked, but I did get comments from the neighbors. This year I am trying deer netting — more as a deterrence. If this doesn’t work I will need to extend the electric fence. The carpenter bees are drilling more holes in the cedar siding on the front of the house.
