I received many wonderful covers during this short absence. So today I would try to squeeze in as many covers as possible. Enjoy!
The first cover was sent from Doha, State of Qatar. Many thanks to Evangelista! The two lovely stamps are from the "Capital of Arab Culture - al QUDS" series, issued on 03 August 2009 and "FIFA World Cup" series, issued in 2002.
Pos Malaysia always issues beautiful stamp sets and here are 2 examples. Courtesy of Khor Kok Keong. Thank you very much bro!
Next is an awesome FDC sent by fellow ICCC member, Ihar Nemkevich from Belarus! He realised that I collect topical stamps of tortoises and turtles and took the effort to send me one (Reptiles of Belarus series, issued in 2003). A great "Thank you" should you happen to read this blog.
The United Nations declared 2010 the International Year of Biodiversity to promote the awareness of ecological balance. In response to this meaningful endeavour, Hongkong Post dedicated her latest stamps edition to living creatures inhabiting Hong Kong with a set of 4 lovely stamps displaying images of species endemic to Hong Kong.
This neat Slovak cover features stamps from the "Milan Hodza" series and "Europa 2010 - Children's Books" series. Great thanks to Robert Brnka!
Also many thanks to D.Hazell for another 2 gorgeous covers posted from South Africa! They feature stamps from the 2004 issued "Spiders" series, a 2005 miniature sheet commemorating the "Freedom Charter" and 1993 "Animals" Definitives.
