This quiet stream is at the Shalom Wildlife Sanctuary in West Bend, Wisconsin.  My family and I spent the day there exploring and enjoying the quiet of a crowd-free weekday visit.  The menagerie of animals included a wide variety of deer and elk, bison, a cougar, bobcats, foxes, raccoons, bear, mountain goats, emu, camels, llamas, and many more I can’t remember.  And while I did get closer to an elk and a llama (literally face to face) than I ever thought I would, not one of the animals was kind enough to take direction, strike a pose,  and stand still long enough for me to capture its portrait!   This stream, however, gladly agreed to allow me to run off a few shots.
