Thanks for showing those Danijela. Can you tell us something about the Croation Post in Bosnia? What part of the country is it located in? Is it just located in Mostar or is it operated in other parts of Bosnia?

According to this Wikipedia map, there are two governments in Bosnia Herzegovina, Republika Serpska and The Federal Government. How does Croatia fit in?

It's unusual. The Croatian Post Mostar is an independant postal operator within Bosnia Herzegovina deserving part of Mostar and around. The areas were there is a majority of Croatians living. That's how I understand it. I collect their Europa stamps issues.

BeeSee- I'll try to explain situation in Bosnia and Herzegovina, but I warning you it's complicated even to us-people who live there.

BiH is formed from two autonomous entities- Federation of BiH(51% of territory) and Republika Srpska-49% of territory (different from Serbia)
Croatian post works on area of Federation where Croats are majority, just like timbres667 said.

Area of operations: 10.908 square kilometers
Number of post offices: 125
Number of employees: 728
Number of delivery areas: 277

New stamp will be released in September, and also new web page. Current web page is old, and boring...
Couple days ago I have a chance to see a new web page that is under construction, it will be finished soon, and it will be much better.

Thank you so much Danijela and Timbres. I have a grasp of it - now my goal will be to obtain some used stamps and covers that pass through the mail (not FDC).

Motif: Cherry (Prunus avium)
Author: Božena Dzidic

Cherry (Prunus avium) is known since the Bronze Age, and today is spread around the world in many varieties and variations. It blooms in early spring, at the same time as the new leaves. The fruits are developed from the white group of flowers that have long stems. It's sweet with pleasant aroma with a distinctive hard-shelled stone in the middle.
A number of medical properties were attributed to the cherry fruits, which until recently was considered a folk medicine. However, recent studies gave a scientific basis and confirmed curative properties of the cherry. They are a good source of vitamins, and the presence of antioxidants and other useful ingredients makes them extremely healthy fruit. They help in cancer prevention, in hearth disease prevention; they relive pain caused by arthritis and gout, headache, alleviating symptoms associated with the diffuse disorder.

I was out on my usual 35Km bike ride this morning,
when 4 Km out of town, met with a 5-6 foot dugite snake
sunning itself on the road.

It moved with amazing speed, before I could get my camera out.

Dugite : Western Australia
Its venom is potentially one of the most lethal in the world, causing coagulopathic and procoagulant effects. Dugites generally avoid biting humans, but risks of encounters rise when they are most active during the mating season through October and November.

personally- I hate snakes,
if happen to me to see dugite- I would die of fear before it even have a chance to bite me

I think that kind of snake is most similar to our poskok- Horned viper (Vipera ammodytes)
