My 8 year old (with a little help from moi) just did a PowerPoint slide show on bug stamps. They are in ABC order.

Here's the link in you're interested in it:

The tune is "Glow-Worm" and it's from a cd of music that was played on the Titanic.

Hope you enjoy!

"Special edition semi-imperforate Dangerous Australians mini sheet including the famous Aust Red-Back spider".
Not released as a general postage stamp because A.P. thought that the realistic size of this venomous spider on the stamp might alarm Postal users who may mistake it for the real Red-backs who live in many Aust' letter boxes. Only released in a "Special pack".

Spanishmoss, very impressive presentation from your 8yo, the future of our hobbie lies in his hands. I learnt a few new names from it.

Sorry Nells!

error, I checked wiki, this is an eyeless cave leech

Is there a stamp with a robin or some other bird with a worm in its mouth?

......and the winner is....
Faroes !

(lumbricus_terrestris)

The secret to finding the stamp was "earthworm" not "worm"




Because it is widely known, Lumbricus terrestris goes under a variety of common names. In Britain, it is primarily called the Common Earthworm. In North America, the term Nightcrawler (or Vitalis) is also used. In Canada, it is also called the Dew Worm, and in Britain, Lob Worm (though that name is also applied to a marine polychaete). In the rest of the world, most references are just to the scientific name, though, with occasional reference to the above names.

Although this is not the most abundant earthworm, not even in its native range, it is a very conspicuous and familiar earthworm species in garden and agricultural soils of the temperate zone, and is frequently seen on the surface, unlike most other earthworms. It is also used as the example earthworm for millions of biology students around the world, even in areas where the species does not exist.
