Wood Ducks

by Tara Tanaka



Tara Tanaka created these short videos on Wood Ducks shooting from a blind in her back yard. The eight videos give a look at the mating and resulting birth of offspring! After seeing these videos you will wonder how such incredibly beautiful creatures could be the second most hunted duck species in the United States.


Tara, who is a two time winner of the prestigious Swarovski Optik Digiscoper of the Year award, shoots her videos and stills with Panasonic Lumix GH3 mounted on a Swarovski STX 95 scope using manual focus.

Tara has recently started working with Think Tank as an affiliate. She has configured a system to carry her equipment  that is comfortable, yet make her scope and camera available for use quickly. It has the additional advantage of fitting under an airplane seat when she travels. The belt system offered by Think Tank also works with the backpack to distribute the load to your hips to ease the load. Of course the belt is well known for the modular system of bags and other components needed when in the field. For all types of cameras and lenses, Think Tank has the answer for storing and transporting your equipment.
