    ...How To Choose Binoculars
    by Philip Tulin

    When the time came to choose binoculars, I decided that I would choose the best binoculars that I could Images  Outdoor Eyes afford based on the use of the binoculars. I didn't want the binoculars to be so heavy that I didn't want to hike with them. I wanted to have a wide FOV (field of view) and I wanted the binoculars to be powerful enough. I wanted to be able to focus fast and at the same time be able to see close up.  Top

    ...Why Nature Photography?
    by Michael T. Impellizzeri

    Nature photography has taught me to measure a day by heartbeats instead of a clock. No second hand will Images  Outdoor Eyes tell me when and what I have seen. I can glance at water rushing down a stream, feel the wind rustling through trees, hear the roaring of thousands of honking geese flying overhead, or watch the splashing waves on a sandy shore, not realizing time is passing by.  Top
    Why nature photography?

    From The Editor
    Do You Have What It Takes?

    Photography is unlike some sports. You don't have to be in the best physical shape, you don't have to be Images  Outdoor Eyes 6 feet tall, you don't have to be 250 pounds and you don't have to learn how to kick, throw or hit a ball. Everyone can pick up a camera and click the button. In a second, whether film or digital is being used, a moment in time is captured. So, why are some photographers better than others? What makes them excel at the sport of photography? Do they draw a camera out of their camera bag faster than the next photographer to shoot a photograph? Do they have better equipment? Whatever you believe and whatever reason you come up with... the bottom line is they keep practicing, practicing and practicing... and educating, educating and educating themselves to learn what it takes to make a GREAT photograph. Place 10 photographers in one location, tell them they can't move more than 50 feet, and at least one photographer will come up with a brilliant photograph. Would it be you? Are you doing whatever it takes to learn? Are you practicing photography or just clicking away and hoping for the best? If you aren't doing all you can do to learn, then you will never have what it takes.  Top

    How To Take Care Of A Car Roof Rack
    by Philip Tulin

    Anything that stays outside for an extended period of time needs periodic maintenance and Images  Outdoor Eyes the roof rack is no exception. Installing a roof rack on the car and never even maintaining the rack can lead to a very expensive lesson... like losing or damaging the outdoor adventure gear that is being carried.  Top

    Quivira National Wildlife Refuge
    By Jerry Segraves

    Hundreds of varieties of birds call this place home if only for a brief period while migrating through. Spring and fall bring huge concentrations Images  Outdoor Eyes of migratory birds including hundreds of thousands of waterfowl and Sand Hill Cranes. Most of the native Whooping Cranes from Wood Buffalo National Park in Canada also stop by in staggered flights and may spend a few days if the prevailing winds are not favorable. Eagles, both Bald and a few Golden spend a good amount of time here in the winter, hunting injured waterfowl as well as keeping a close eye on the prairie dog population.  Top
