Issued for the 360th anniversary of Isaac Newtons birth. Newton developed three laws of motion, of which the second law is shown in the equation on the stamp. Also shown is his experiment where he refracts white light with a prism into its constituent colours of red, orange, yellow, green, blue and violet.
The Common Loon is characterized by its large size and sharply pointed bill (unlike those of ducks and geese). Their legs are positioned far back on their bodies which makes them strong propellers in the water but also makes it difficult for walking on land. They spend almost all of their time on water, except to nest and even then, the nests are very close to water. Usually two eggs are laid in early June with an incubation period of around four weeks.
