Where is our dancer's gaze?
|1960: Butterflies and Agricultural Products|
Perhaps seeing one of the local butterflies fluttering by, I don't know what the Malagasy call it so will have to stick to its scientific name - Acraea hova. It lives in forests so the stamp has a nice leafy green background.
Next a species that is green, the Golden-fronted Leafbird, also an inhabitant of forests
But for all over green it has to be this pair of Green-rumped parrotlet found in northeastern South America and the island of Trinidad. I wondered why it was called a parrotlet and then saw its size - 4.7 inches (12cm) long.
|1958: Mongolian Animals|
Sunday Stamps theme this week is - Green - See It On A Postcard
Lots of green! I like the parrotlets. I wonder is they can be pet birds.
So many wonderful greens this week - the goat! - so much cashmere on this guy, the green birds (googled the parrotlets - so cute) and the Malagasy stamps! - you even have a great language stamp with Latin, French and Malagasy. I hadn't seen a stamp with the country name written in French.
Those birds couldn't be greener!
