Friday/ the Big Five 🦏🐃 🦁 🐆 🐘

It was dark by the time the mailman came today, but he dropped an envelope with a bunch of stamps I had ordered from a seller in California.
So it was all worth the wait.

The Big Five* (Rhinoceros, Buffalo, Lion, Leopard and Elephant) is a very popular and recurring theme on South African stamps and barely a year or two goes by, before yet another set of stamps with The Big Five on them is issued. The strip of Big Five animal stamps at the top of the picture is from 1996, and the ones in the foreground are from 1998.
