From South Africa, just in time, came this lovely card of Hartbeespoort Dam. It was built in 1925 and, apart from its primary use for collecting water for irrigation, it is also a popular resort for water sports of all types.
The stamp shows the West Wind Gladiator or Mantophasma zephyra, issued in 2008 for the International Congress of Entymology. West Wind Gladiator is a lovely name for an insect I'd prefer not to meet. I prefer not to meet very many insects at all. Bees are OK. Ladybirds. That's about my lot.
Updated when I remembered my stamps from Egypt:
Blogger won't let me size the last one the way I want. In fact it's much smaller than the others.
This is a post for Sunday Stamps, now hosted by Violet Sky at "See it on a Postcard!"
