Greetings friends!

When you hold a US dollar bill in your hands, you feel its texture, a notch, some irregularities on the surface of the paper and you understand that it was done well, by people who respect themselves and use high-quality banknotes.

Something like, I can feel it when I hold the Landscapes with animals stamps in my hand. released back in 1957 in French Equatorial Africa.

These postage stamps deserve respect, they show us the African landscapes and animals that live there and are done by a very talented artist who made the African world on postage stamps very realistic.

French Equatorial Africa is not a country, it is a colony of four countries such as Ubangi Shari, French Chad, Middle Congo and Gabon.

In my collection there are two postage stamps from series Landscapes with animals, today we will see one of them.

Under a face value of 3 Fr. - French African CFA franc. we see a postage stamp called - African Elephant (Loxodonta africana).

The postage stamp has survived perfectly, time has not touched the bad and has not spoiled it, it, even today, can be pasted on a postal envelope, lol.

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.
