I have an incredible stash of un-blogged postcards, they come in faster than I can scan them and find something to say about them. So here is the first in a three-part series of back-logged animal postcards from various continents. Today we will do Europe, next Asia, and we’ll wrap it up with the Americas.
The tortoise comes first because it is a card I have been meaning to feature for a long time (more than a year). Isn’t it a great card? It comes from eisdrache on the Postcrossing forum. I would like to collect more tortoise cards, but I only have this one.
This card is a more recent swap, from Belarus. It features many different birds on stamps that have been released in the last 20 years.
This is an official Postcrossing card from Russia.
This is a card showing chamois in the Tatra National Park of Slovakia. The chamois is a small goat-antelope animal. They are good runners and jumpers. Chamois cleaning cloths were traditionally made of chamois hide leather.
This is an official Postcrossing card from Ireland, showing some Irish sheep.
This wolf is an official Postcrossing card from Russia.
And finally, this card of this woman and her dog comes from Poland.
