Back from Rome, back to stamps ;-)
For today I wanted to show you this souvenir sheet from Moldova that I got last week through a stamps exchange circuit. I found it quite nice so I decided to share it with you.
The tawny eagle (Aquilla rapax)
The great white egret (Egretta alba). Egrets are like herons, they fly with their neck retracted which is different from storks or cranes which extend their neck.
The little bustard (Tetrax tetrax)
The mute swan (Cygnus olor). The mute swan is the national bird of the Kingdom of Denmark. The famous “swan song” refers to this species of swan and to the legend that it is utterly silent until the last moment of its life, and then sings a beautiful song just before dying. In reality the mute swan is not completely silent.
I think the stamps and the souvenir sheet are well designed and give a beautiful result. I like also the predominating brown colour that gives a specific atmosphere.
