Greetings friends!

Today we will see the continuation of the Butterflies (1963) series of postage stamps issued in 1963 in the Republic of Guinea.

This series shows us the amazing world of butterflies that live within the borders of this country.

But, no, no one can encroach on the freedom of butterflies, except for the entomologists who hunt them lol.

Freedom and independence, this is a butterfly, but it is difficult to catch and keep alive in your hand.

For butterflies, ganitsa do not exist, this is confirmed by the fact that many species of butterflies migrate to more northern latitudes from their habitats.

On a 50 GFr - Guinean franc postage stamp, we see a beautiful butterfly Citrus Swallowtail (Papilio demodocus).

Cataclysms, revolutions, military coups can occur around us, as in Guinea after the proclamation of independence, but three things remain unchanged and in demand, these are: money, postage stamps and butterflies.

Yes, butterflies, this is a good reason to provide work for the printing press, which will release a new series of postage stamps, which, in turn, will bring significant funds to the country's budget.

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.
