Sunday Stamps II - 71

2013, 68p Jersey, Damsels and Dragons
illustrator: Lizzie Harper

A series of six stamps to commemorate the 30th anniversary of the British Dragonfly Society were painted by Lizzie Harper, a natural history illustrator. This one shows the Large Red Damselfly which is one of the earliest insects to appear in the spring. It can grow up to 36mm and can generally be found near slow moving water, ponds, and bogs.

  3. Lovely stamp. I definitely think dragonflies are underrepresented as stamp subjects.
