שמע ישראל ה' אלהינו ה' אחד
فمن كان يرجوا لقاء ربه فليعمل عملا صالحا ولا يشرك بعبادة ربه أحدا

Nature Stamps

Western Sahara | map
These birds are the Ibis, Namaqua Dove and Kori Bustard. & Kori Bustard is perhaps the heaviest bird capable of flying. Geographically, the Sahara OCC is a disputed region so these stamps may not be accepted.
Afghanistan | map
These stamps were issued 3 years before their first astronaut, Abdul Ahad Mohmand flew into space. I read when he spoke with his mother, Pashto became the 4th language spoken in space. ماشاء الله

Cuba | map
These birds are the Great Crested Grebe, Weka and Bushwren. So sad, Bushwren is believed to be extinct. & Weka is under legal protection in New Zealand. BTW, I read Cuba is a Carribean island whose natural beauty is preserved due to its isolation.
UAE | map
These flowers look like Calla Lilies, Peonies and Daffodils. & Dh65? Wow... & these are from Sharjah, some using Riyal, so they could be issued before or close to when the UAE was born in 1971.
Romania | map
Maybe the left are Violets, and the middle are Snapdragons. The right? Sorry, somehow I only found the Danube Delta - the second largest delta in Europe & a bird watcher’s paradise. BTW, Romania is famous for the Black Sea & castles. Update : it's Flowering Rush.
Kyrgystan | map
Uzbekistan | map
Sorry, I can't read Kyrgyz or Uzbek. (◠v◠)v Anyway, Kyrgyzstan is famous for its horses & Uzbekistan is famous for its architecture. Being in the Silk Road - a route linking between ancient Rome & China - do the people look in between? & most are muslims. ماشاء الله
