Today's theme in Sunday Stamps is the most difficult one: Your choice!
I have chosen two series I have received this year on postcards. My friends Bryon (the USA) and John (the UK) have been very thoughtful. And the postal services have collaborated in delivering all the postcards!
The first series is Wild Coasts, issued by Royal May on 22 July 2021. You can see here better pictures.
|Common Cuttlefish / Grey Seal|
|Orca / Fried-egg Anemone|
|Bottlenose Dolphin / Spiny Spider Crab|
|Cuckoo Wrasse / Cold-water Coral Reef|
And the second set is older, but also sent and received along 2021. Endangered Species was issued on 2 February 1996 by USPS:
|Wyoming Toad (Anyxyrus baxteri) |
Brown Pelican (Pelecanus occidentalis)
Gila Trout (Oncorhynchus gilae)
San Francisco Garter Snake (Thamnophis sirtalis tetrataenia)
|Black-footed Ferret (Mustela nigripes) |
Thick-billed Parrot (Rhynchopsitta pachyrhyncha)
American Crocodile (Crocodylus acutus)
Ocelot (Leopardus pardalis)
|Schaus' Swallowtail (Papilio aristodemus ssp. ponceanus) |
California Condor (Gymnogyps californianus)
Hawaiian Monk Seal (Monachus schauinslandi)
|Florida panther (Felis concolor couguar) |
Piping Plover (Charadrius melodus)
American Manatee (Trichechus manatus)
Woodland caribou (Rangifer tarandus caribou)

Love the vibrant colors in the British stamps!ReplyDelete
Both series are wonderful. Thanks again!Delete
I am a cat person and that ocelot is adorable!ReplyDelete
I think the colours are beautiful in both series.
I agree. It's difficult to choose only one of these.Delete
I like the diversity on the US stamps, something for every wildlife enthusiast. I'm amusing myself by saying piping plover, great name.ReplyDelete
And what about Fried-egg anemone? :)Delete
