Sweden Post issued a set of stamps feature 4 preys, they are commonly can be found in this country and other northern countries from Norway to Russia. Follow the style of Swedish stamps, four stamps used traditional intaglio multicolour processor to print the stamp in reel format. Of course, I must say thanks to Sweden Post of their kindly help, their help was beyond my imagine.

Actually I don't like osprey or eagle, due to their size are too large and like catch small species. This pair of covers, illustrated an osprey caught a fish in pound, but printed in colour and black-and-write versions respectively.

L : Western Osprey (魚鷹) ; R : Eurasian Sparrowhawk (北雀鷹)
