Baby Wildlife series 2011

Baby Wildlife series 2011
Added by Alain Martineau
General Description : Canadian definitives are “workhorse” stamps—they are the most accessible of our stamps and those mostly used for mailings. As such, they have to work the hardest to represent the whole of the country. In the past, they have featured a variety of imagery, including photos of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II, the Parliament buildings, various images of the flag, native trees and wildlife, and for the past several years, flowers, including a three-year series of Orchid stamps, interrupted in 2009, by our Vancouver 2010 Olympic definitives.
Since animals are always a popular choice for both definitives and commemoratives, it was certain that portraying the youngest, cutest members of our Canadian wildlife families was sure to tug on the heartstrings of mailers and provide collectors with another multiple-year series that could represent the whole of the country.
