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.

tortoise

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.

bird-stamps

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.

RU-2571494

This is an official Postcrossing card from Russia.

chamois

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.

IE-73668

This is an official Postcrossing card from Ireland, showing some Irish sheep.

RU-2292435

This wolf is an official Postcrossing card from Russia.

PL-728382

And finally, this card of this woman and her dog comes from Poland.
