Bowdoin National Wildlife Refuge

When we took our trip to Northern Montana we were fortunate enough to have time to go and visit the Bowdoin National Wildlife Refuge near Malta. It's a very beautiful area. We saw antelope. All kinds of birds that I've never seen before or only seen once or twice. I got some really nice shots of what I thought was a Jay. Turns out it's a Cedar Wax Wing. You can see this striking fellow below. And the bees were humming everywhere. Caught the honeybee below on a leaf. And just to put icing on the cake, we found this large-jawed orb weaver (don't know the exact species) near the pond. Definitely one of the more memorable parks I've visited.
