Cover - Canada

I received this cover a couple of days back. One more beautiful addition to my Canadian covers and my overall cover collection. Thank you Eddie.

The stamps on the cover are three out of the set of five stamps on wildlife photography. On May 22nd, 2010, Canada Post began issuing this series featuring some of the winners of the Canadian Geographic Wildlife Photography Contest for 2006. The stamps feature images from photos submitted to various categories of the contest.

The winning photographs featured on the series:
A glorious humming bird by 15 year old Wing Yam Tam
Tree swallow chicks nesting in a pipe by Mark Bardley
Majestic great blue heron - this haunting image of a heron perched on a boulder in the mist was captured by Martin Cooper.
Red fox by Ben Boulter
Katydid - this colourful insect was photographed by Julie Bazinet of Gatineau.
