Australian Butterflies - Sunday Stamps

Viridian's call this week is for us to show colourful stamps. I've chosen to go 'down under' with some butterflies.

Australia - Butterflies 1981
These five are from a set of twelve issued then. They are:

  • 27c Ulysses Swallowtail
  • 35c Blue Tiger
  • 45c Big Greasy
  • 60c Wood White
  • 81c Sword Grass Brown.
For more colourful stamps you need to flit across to Sunday-stamps-133.

I have so much trouble remembering these 'interesting names' of butterflies!
Nice set of wings.
