Cover - China
Beautiful cover from China. Any cover with a complete set of stamps on it always excites me. This stamp set shows four diurnal (a daily recurring pattern) raptors or birds of prey in Falconiformes, namely Aquila Heliaca, Circus Cyaneus, Accipiter Gentilis, and Falco Tinnunculus. It was issued on Feb 23rd, 2014 by China Post. The four stamps amount to a total denomination of 5.4 Yuan.
