I always feel weird using this one. It’s like I’m telling the recipient that I think they drink too much. :laughing:

I think that’s why it wasn’t a big seller!


Issued today by PostNL: Garden insects


I’m curious what does the winged brain mean then?
Looking at it I first think “brain drain” (meaning educated people move to another country/area with their knowledge). But it comes from the cage, so maybe “don’t let your ideas be limited”?

Very cool, interesting stamp!

Interesting question. The winged brain getting out of the cage reminds me of freedom of thought.

Yes, this is the Eurasian wild hamster (Cricetus cricetus). In Dutch it’s called ‘korenwolf’. They are only to be found in the south of the Netherlands and they are critically endangered.

We’re getting an awful lot of Derry Noyes this year.

Am I the only one who thinks that the ‘existing photographs/images’ approach they are using a lot more is kinda cheap and spiritless?

I agree. I would have expected to them to do less of that following the very expensive Statue of Liberty stamp image lawsuit that wrapped up not too long ago.
