My friend Tammi rears Monarchs. Her hobby of collecting the eggs, caring for the caterpillars, and releasing Monarch butterflies has grown to the point that this summer she tagged and released 178 of them! So in early August, when I found a tiny Monarch caterpillar on a milkweed plant in my garden, I [...]

With some extra time over a long weekend, I decided to take the Papilio home for a close up inspection of the late summer offerings in my [...]
Life is full of different types of progression. My son’s school sends progress reports between quarterly grade reports. A student of karate will progress through different belt colors until they reach the black belt level. Every parent’s nightmare–a toy with “some assembly required” will lead one through a progression of sometimes frustrating directions. Thankfully, the [...]
Our Eagle Optics birding trip got off to a terrific start last Saturday. With binoculars in hand, we had barely entered the Pheasant Branch Conservancy and our group was greeted by a Great Horned Owl and Cooper’s Hawk perched a couple trees apart. Their stately presence, and the majesty of the trees and nature around [...]
Gas prices and auto manufacturers seem to be in the news a lot lately. Gas prices are rising and auto sales of large gas-guzzling motor vehicles are down as consumers look for a more fuel efficient automobile to offset increased fuel cost. Yet it can be difficult to make the move to a compact car [...]

Believe me, I always learn a lot when I take a call from a sport optics collector-and there are more of you than you might think! [...]
