Sunday Stamps - S

1985, Singapore definitive insects

We always need honeybees - though maybe not such a supersized looking one?! The apis cerana javana is one of four bees found in Singapore and is not even the giant honey bee (apis dorsata). This is an Asian honey bee, and there is also a dwarf honey bee as well as a stingless bee.

for the letter S - Singapore


  1. A stingless bee sounds interesting...!

  2. Bees always make for interesting stamp subjects.

  3. Love bees, such fascinating creatures to watch. A popular subject for stamps, I like the detail of this one.
