Sunday Stamps L3 - Mexico, Malawi, Germany

If you liked the kestrel in last week's post I'm sure that, like me, you will be pleased to see on of the Big Five from Malawi.
Malawi - 11 March 2011 - Leopard
However that is one stamp where I wish the country name was smaller.

If going to the theatre is your thing, how about visiting San Luis Potosi - 
Mexico -27 July 1945
Reconstruction of the Theatre of La Paz
In Germany I found an impressive castle, and no it didn't belong to Ludwig.
Germany - 2 January 2015
Ludwigslust Castle
In 2013 a joint issue between Germany and Australia commemorated the 200th Anniversary of the Birth of Ludwig Leichhardt. Ludwig disappeared along with 7 men, 20 mules and 70 bullocks on an exploration expedition in Australia in 1848.

No trace of them has ever been found other than the burnt-out stock of a gun in a tree, despite searches  still being carried out.

I like how they have placed the leopard's nose in the country name. What a mysterious story about the explorers.

That leopard is superb.

And I had no idea about Leichhardt - crazy that their remains were never found.

Hi Bob - lovely to see the leopard ... but as you say the name is a little large or unnecessarily so ... but love the stamp - cheers Hilary

A nice and original selection, as usual. The leopard is amazing on this stamp.
