What country/entity issued the stamps with this detail on them?
Two points for the first person to correctly identify it; one point if we need to post an easier version Saturday.

What Rob says x2... this is a tough one. Will check back on Saturday as I'm clueless now.

Oh wait, now I see it: a yellow-bellied sea snake swimming in a sea of asphalt.

stamperix, you're horrible.
Of course you're right, except for one thing: I only WISH it was mine.
I "specialize" in the 90% common world stamps. No valuable stamp will (sadly) set foot in my collection.

Yes, it was a toughie, and misleading, too....So, for one point, here's a less misleading view.

The original image showing just the banana stem was indeed a toughie.

BTW, in what languages Banana is called Musa?
I'm asking because the other name of Banana in Hebrew is Muz, so I'm curious about the origin of the name.
