Sunday Stamps | P(enguins)

When I thought I hadn't any stamp for the theme P of Sunday Stamps-II, I found some penguins...

French stamp dedicated  to the commemoration of the 150th birthday of Jean-Baptiste Charcot (1867-1936), medical doctor an polar explorer. Stamp issued on 24 April 2017.


Argentina issued this stamp on 2011, on a set dedicated to the XXXIV Antarctic Treaty Consultative Meeting. The penguin here is a Pygnoscelis papua or gentoo penguin. (Here a better view of the set.)


Stamp issued for the 100th anniversary of Burger's Zoo in Anhem (the Netherlands), showing a pair of Spheniscus demersus or African penguin. It belongs to an interesting set issued in 2013.


I had already published this one, a Eudyptes chrysolophus or macaroni penguin, arrived from South Georgia and South Sandwich Islands. This stamp was issued on 25 October 2015, and it belongs to a set of four penguins. 


The postmark makes it almost invisible, but there is a penguin on this Spanish stamp dedicated to the Spanish military shelter established on Deception Island in 1989. The shelter is named after the navigator and explorer Gabriel de Castilla. (More information and a bigger picture of the stamp)


Stamp issued by USPS on 1 June 2015, that pays tribute to the majestic Aptenodytes forsteri or emperor penguin. (More information)
