Tiger cover from Hong Kong

Many thanks to Brian Kam for this lovely cover posted from Kowloon, Hong Kong!

The Year of tiger is just around the corner, 2 days away to be exact! On 6th Feb 2010, Hong Kong Post issued a set of 4 beautiful stamps to welcome the coming Tiger year, which begins on Feb. 14 and ends on Feb. 2, 2011. These stamps illustrate 4 breeds of tigers in different postures – sprinting, patrolling, gazing and lounging.

One of the stamp featuring a sprinting tiger can be seen on the cover above. To make up for the postage, Brian used a definitive stamp from the Bird series, issued in 2006.

Many Postal services around the world also issued commemorative stamps to welcome the Year of Tiger 2010 and here are some of them.
