      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 .

They are such willing subjects! If you want to practice nice backgrounds in good conditions with subjects that give you a half a chance, geese are it!

There are greater and lesser. This is a greater. The lesser are definitely smaller. The neck looks shorter because he isn't sticking it out at the moment.

There are actually more than two types of Canadian geese. There are many different subspecies of the goose. Just a quick search on the internet netted me 11 subspecies of a canada goose. Giant, Western, Vancouver, Atlantic, Dusky, Hudson's Bay, Lesser, Taverner's, Aleutian, Richardsons, and Cackling. Good luck telling the differnce on some of those. Nice photos Mike. Number one is my favorite.

I find it interesting that there is only one species that nests in South Dakota, and that one is the Giant Canada Goose. This species was almost extinct at one time, but was rediscovered near Rochester, MN. The giants can get to at least 14.4#.
