Articles April 2004 to December 2006 for Butterflies and Insects

These high value definitives are very beautiful.
Yet another definitive series from Kenya that is as beautiful as a commemorative series. The butterflies series is yet another example. I include a page with cancelled stamps and one cover.
Bhutan is one of the quintessential "only for collectors" stamp issuing countries. These 3-D (three-dimensional) stamps are beautiful, outrageous!

Here are some butterfly stamps for seven Malaysian provinces. I include here selected stamps from seven of the provinces. Quick Links: Johor / Kedah / Kelantan / Melaka / Negeri-Sembilan / Perak / Perlis
This commemorative issue is very appealing. It has beautiful depictions of butterflies and fish. Below is a large image of the scarcest value of the series, the 20c Special Delivery. I include here quick links to the series mint, and used-mostly CTO since this issue saw almost no genuine postal use.
I show a page with the eight values from this issue. The 3D issues of Bhutan are the quintesential stamps for collectors. These stamps are at the opposite extreme of the high volume utilitarian definitive.
Here is a great series of insect commemoratives. I show highlights of the singles, and scans of the sheetlets.
This is the second installment of images from the Ghana Green Card correspondence. Quick links: images of the two stamps, covers and selections from covers for the 400c Butterfly and the 400c Shell.
These definitives show the same designs for each value, repeated for each Malaysian state. Here is the series from Trengganu.
