      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 .

BIFs and DIF

Recommended Posts

BIFs, well, y'all know that means birds in flight. DIF means deer in flight. gringrin

From this afternoon at the Sax-Zim Bog, a bald eagle, buck fawn and rough-legged hawk (pale morph).

All with Canon 30D and Canon 400 f5.6L, iso400, f5.6, various shutter speeds. BIFs shot at +1 exposure compensation, deer also accidentally at +1 (DOH!)

I can,t decide on which eagle pic I like better but they both are keepers. I like the full right wing on the first but when you see both wings as equal that looks good too.I was wondering what in the heck you said to that doe ? It must have been something to do with marinade and the grill grin

Love the raptors. I have to agree about the first hawk. It seems like hawk in flight shots are really tough, much more so than eagles. For some reason, this bugger seems to be coming your way. Sharp eyes with a glint - great combo. Oh, that butt shot isn't bad either. grin

It is not so much the camera but you need a good lens too. Steve put in the specs but I would guess around $2000 with a fast CF card would get you there. Its not about the cost but the enjoyment of the shot grin

Seriously nice work Steve! The hawk shots are beauties but I like that doe in the tall grass as well and the leaping doe. They are just not your everyday deer in the woods shots!

Thanks again, everyone.

BTW, it's not a doe. It's a buck fawn. You can see the antler nubbins in the standing shot and a little bit in the sitting shot.

The light out there from 3 p.m. on was to die for. Light gauzy clouds, warm light, gentle. Mmmmmmmmm. Hope it's the same way tomorrow. Have to decide: Head up the Echo or hit the Tomahawk? Maybe the Tomahawk, considering the wolf story I have to tell on a separate thread. gringrin
