Greetings friends!

To participate in the international exhibition of postage stamps CAPEX '87, Cambodia has prepared a strong, Olympic team, so to speak about postage stamps.

A series of postage stamps International Stamp Exhibition CAPEX '87, Toronto, Canada, timed to coincide with this event and issued in 1987, impresses with the quality of workmanship using offset lithography.

Each image of postage stamps shows us in great detail the birds and a small section of the biotope where they live.

Each postage stamp in this series is a carrier of information, a means of payment for postage and a collector's item, as in this case.

Apparently, most of the circulation, which is not mentioned anywhere, was redeemed by order and distributed among collectors, the countries of the Socialist camp, to be precise, in the USSR, these stamps were sold at the Press Union kiosks.

Perhaps I was one of the earliest owners of such a series of postage stamps, lol.

On the next postage stamp, denomination 3 ៛ - Cambodian riel, we see the dweller of the twilight - Purple Heron (Ardea purpurea).

She sleeps when everyone is awake and she is awake when everyone is still having sweet dreams.

I would call this bird a harpoon bird, because, just like a harpoon, it uses its long and thin beak, piercing through the fish in the water.

Let's take a look at this postage stamp.

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.
