Pheasants in the World of Stamps

The 'World Philatelic Exhibition' in Pragati Maidan, New Delhi (12-18 Feb.) is drawing large crowds, young and old with an interest in collecting stamps and postal history. I didn't know there were so many 'stamp enthusiasts' in Delhi!

I spent the sunday at the exhibition, where I had gone hoping to see some stamps on wildlife, particularly birds. The collection from all over the world is huge. The wildlife stamps are not arranged in a catogory at one place and are scattered, but the collection is very impressive. The stamps are accompanied by a brief note on its history and the animals' ecology etc. There are also stalls from various countries, selling stamps and stamp albums. To see more stamps, you can follow me on Flickr -
