One More in February

Time to squeeze in one more for February.

 Let's start with a surprise and unexpected card from India. It's the one-horned rhino from Kaziranga National Park. The park is located in the Northeastern state of Assam in the flood plains of the Brahmaputra River's south bank. It was declared a World Heritage Site by UNESCO in 1985 .  Kaziranga National Park has the distinction of being home to the world's largest population of the Great Indian One-Horned Rhinoceros.

Aneeo from Belgaum sent this card and used 2 small Indian stamps.

My next card is a look at Chateau Lake Louise at sunrise. The Chateau is just visible with its reflection showing in the lake.

The stamp on this one is one celebrating the Diamond Jubilee of Queen Elizabeth, with a nice Lake Louise cancellation.

Now it's the Royal Grand Palace in Bangkok, Thailand.

Once again Jobbo used great stamps. On the left is a 1991 stamp issued for the Red Cross. The middle stamp, issued in 1996, is 1 of a set of 4 showing Rhino Birds. The stamp on the right is from 2001 , 1 of 4 in a Parrots set.

I know I often speak of the stamps of Thailand and that I am enjoying them, well let me just say that the 2 bird stamps are beautiful. They may show up here as just ordinary or average, but in person on the postcard , they are extremely attractive. They have an extra special quality to them. I'm glad to have them.

Now it's a card from Sri Lanka. The card is called " Golden Legendary " and has a lovely Thai Flight Attendant in the lower right corner.

Ravindra used 3 stamp, all from 2016. The top left stamp celebrates Lions Clubs Internationl's Centennial. The larger stamp on the right is a Christmas issue and the smaller stamp underneath is 1 of 12 in a Flowers set.

We're just about done for today, just one more card to go. Again it's from Thailand. This one is of the Aisawan-Dhipaya-Asana Pavilion in Bang Pa- In Palace.

This is another one from Jobbo, again with great stamps. On the left is a 1998 stamp , 1 of 4, showing Stone Statues, another nice set. The middle stamp, 1 of 6 Queen Sirikit stamps was issued in 2013. The last stamp is from 1985 , 1 of 5 issued for Thaipex 85.

So there, I've brought February to a close with these cards. Thanks to Jobbo, Ravindra and Aneeo. Thanks for dropping by, see you all next month, like tomorrow , maybe.
