      Members Only Fluid Forum View   08/08/2017

      Fluid forum view allows members only to get right to the meat of this community; the topics. You can toggle between your preferred forum view just below to the left on the main forum entrance. You will see three icons. Try them out and see what you prefer.   Fluid view allows you, if you are a signed up member, to see the newest topic posts in either all forums (select none or all) or in just your favorite forums (select the ones you want to see when you come to Fishing Minnesota). It keeps and in real time with respect to Topic posts and lets YOU SELECT YOUR FAVORITE FORUMS. It can make things fun and easy. This is especially true for less experienced visitors raised on social media. If you, as a members want more specific topics, you can even select a single forum to view. Let us take a look at fluid view in action. We will then break it down and explain how it works in more detail.   The video shows the topic list and the forum filter box. As you can see, it is easy to change the topic list by changing the selected forums. This view replaces the traditional list of categories and forums.   Of course, members only can change the view to better suit your way of browsing.   You will notice a “grid” option. We have moved the grid forum theme setting into the main forum settings. This makes it an option for members only to choose. This screenshot also shows the removal of the forum breadcrumb in fluid view mode. Fluid view remembers your last forum selection so you don’t lose your place when you go back to the listing. The benefit of this feature is easy to see. It removes a potential barrier of entry for members only. It puts the spotlight on topics themselves, and not the hierarchical forum structure. You as a member will enjoy viewing many forums at once and switching between them without leaving the page. We hope that fluid view, the new functionality is an asset that you enjoy .

Thanks, jonny. We really liked that the wind was coming from behind these birds, which ruffed up their head feathers and made them look like harpy eagle wannabees. gringrin

In the burst that contained the third image posted here, it looked like they were actually mating, though I'd imagined they'd already mated and implanted eggs before they hit the nest up here a week or so ago. But maybe they wait to mate until they get to the nest.

Anybody know?

I dunno either, but why is there a threesome going on? confused I am somewhat envious, guys. They are great shots of a beautiful bird.

Hopefully, I'll find a cooperative one in about a month. I have a lead on one that's been nesting on the same pole in someone's yard, for about 10 years. However, since everything is at least 200 miles away, I'm waiting until the chicks are hatched.

Excellent images gentlemen. The addition of the third osprey in some of the images is very interesting. Was there competition for this site? Just friendly neighbors?

Doesn't look very friendly--it looks dangerous! Fabulous action shots, both of you. I don't know about the timing of the mating process but the one on the left sure looks like he's ready for a cigarette.
