      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 .

Its nice to have these cordial birds back again. I went out with a friend on Sunday and we managed a few images.

No waxworms, just ancient Chinese secret. grin

We had some very cooperative birds and decided to get creative and thought maybe that be the type of image to send into Birds & Blooms or something along those lines.

Love the first one. Calander shot for sure.

Birds and Bloom would probably love to have either of them.

Those shots are great!

I've seen a few people do the same thing. One guy was using his ipod touch,which he had many,many territorial bird songs downloaded onto it. He would stick the ipod in the hood of his 600mm F4,and had 5-6 birds sitting on his rig at one time!

Using today's technology,it's quite easy to pull birds into 200mm range,all that's needed is an mp3 player w/external speaker,and download some various bird songs off the WWW.

Excellent bluebird images. The first image has it all, bg control, great subject placement, perfect dof, sweet perch,

light, etc. etc. The whimsical nature of the second image is quite engaging. Top notch sir.
