      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 .

    You know what we all love...

    When you enchant people, you fill them with delight and yourself in return. Have Fun!!!

as a beaver. I had seen a couple beavers playing around every time I got to this spot. However, since I always got there in the afternoon, the sun was always behind them. This time, I took a walk thru the thick vegetation so as to come from a different direction. They must have heard me because by the time I got to where I wanted to be, one was heading the wrong direction around a bend in the creek. I waited, figuring eventually he would come back. All of a sudden, I saw what appeared to be weeds coming across the water. I looked thru my zoom and saw the beaver in the corn. I fired a couple shots, and afer he got out of sight, I waited expecting him to go across and grab some more and come back. In the meantime, I took a few more steps towards where he should come back. Sure enough, here he came and I took a few more shots. That was his last trip. After a few minutes i decided to head back to the car. I took about 3 steps and kerplunk. Another one hit the water about 10 feet from me. I knelt down expecting him to surface. Lo and behold, here came another one down the same slide. He paused at the edge of the weeds and water and I had to lean way over, to avoid the weeds in front of his head. I got one shot and he was gone. Pretty soon, this other one comes swimming down the creek. I sat in the weeds and eventually he came right on by. It was a good day for beavers.

I then caught this Great Egret in flight and the second one is just interesting, with the trail he's leaving. wink The sparrow was a bonus to finish the afternoon.
