      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 .

I came across these deer grazing last night around 8:00. It was a good test on how well my 30D handles ISO 1600. I had never ramped the ISO that high before, but I'm quite pleased. These were all shot at 1600 and all at f6.3. The first one was at a shutter speed of 100/sec, the 2nd one at 1/60 and the last at 1/50. The first photo is to show the difference in coloration and the last shot is the first good photo I have ever got of a buck in the wild. It's certainly no trophy, but it is a buck. grin The buck was not cropped at all.

Finally another one to check off the dastardly honeydew list. Women can be relentless and merciless.

Thanks, Dan.

Does anyone have any idea why the 2 different color variations? Until now, I had never even seen an ash gray white-tail.

Sure Steve, but what haven't you tried with your 30D? wink Heck, I'm still in the learning stage. smile

I'm learning more every day too, buddy. smilesmile

On the coat differences, what leaps out at me is both the grays are bucks past their fawn year and the oranges are doe/fawn. Maybe bucks transition out of their summer coats earlier than does/fawns.

Steve, you may be right. I did a bit of research this morning and read that in the fall, the brown/orange hair is replaced by gray/tan hair. Evidentally, only the bucks are being fooled by this cooler than normal summer.
