I couldn't wait to get to the post office today to get my hands on these new stamps. Just out today, they show different species of bees and are nearly actual size so the images are very vivid. The British Beekeepers Association worked with the Royal Mail to create this set of stamps and the images they chose show the bees at their best. There is also a miniature sheet which features four illustrations depicting different aspects of the bees' life I bought way too many but I know they will all get used. I just love them; they're bright and fresh and all about summer.
