I first saw this set displayed on Herrick's web site after an email from a correspondent. It continues the annual series of splendid sets that started in 2001, and adds 6 new species to my collection. The two owl stamps are a disappointment: the 45c issue shows a mirror image of one issued in 2005, while image on the "Q" stamp would fit a vertical stamp better.
