      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 .

An eagle launches (more pics added)

Ken, being the good buddy that he is, showed me where the bold eagles he photographed yesterday were. We headed there over the noon hour and found one fourth-year bird to model for us.

They sure look good, Steve! I headed over there after school, and they were gone. Not even a raven there anymore. Good thing we went when we did!

Those are great actions shots - even the white head feathers are crystal clear.

Just curious - I believe I understand that you have identified this bird as a four year old if so how did you determine that.

Thanks, guys. HH, the head's not quite solid white (slight color left in line extending back from eye), and there's a reddish/brown wash of color toward the bottom of the tail. After its next molt it'll sport full adult plumage.

Thanks, all. It was a fun time. grin

For some reason the 2nd looks less saturated than the other 2. Is it a different bird?

This was a series of three shots in succession from the same burst. If there are differences in saturation, it's from mistakes I made in pp.

Certainly not quite like Steve's excellent shots, but a couple I got today as well:

As I look at these, I've got a bit of color in the whites. Steve, where did this come from?

Is Canon making a 3.8 lens? wink

Ooops. Edit made. grin

Nice shots, Ken. Too bad they were gone when you returned. Must've picked the ribcages clean and gone on to other things. smile

It sure got dark in a hurry yesterday afternoon. frown

Finnbay, I like your shots also.

I like how the details in the chest and head feathers show up in the first the best.

Thanks

Dan
