Greetings friends!

We have been in Laos for the last three days I decided we weren't going to take the big jump, long distance.

We will see how the neighbors of Laos live.

For this, we will cross the southern border of Laos and find ourselves in a country with a totalitarian regime!

We walked a short distance, but we jumped 29 years into the future and ended up in 1987.

A series of postage stamps International Stamp Exhibition CAPEX '87, Toronto, Canada, released in 1987 at Cambodia, will show us the world of birds.

As the name of this series suggests, it was released specifically to participate in this exhibition of postage stamps.

I think that philatelists from all over the world came there. At the time, postage stamps were still popular.

Guys. bees, hide, our hive was attacked by a predatory monster, a bee eater!

On the first postage stamp of this series, we see a beautiful bird Nubian Bee-eater (Merops nubicus), which destroys bees, this is her favorite delicacy.

For my publications, I do not use stock photographs, it is fundamentally important for me to use photographs that I have made with my own hands for publication and I can name them - authorial work.
