In Canada, and I suspect in most other countries too, one may now customize postage stamps according to one's wishes. Perhaps this is an attempt to encourage more people to use the postal service as opposed to electronic mail, based on the theory that people will want to send correspondence with their souvenir stamp to their friends and acquaintances.
We have done this once before, several years ago, with a particularly nice picture of a Barred Owl taken by Miriam and I decided to do it with one of my photographs from our recent trip to Costa Rica. This handsome bird certainly fits the bill. I suspect that it may be the only Canadian postage stamp ever to feature a toucan!
