^__^ At a card like this I can look alday long, I'm smiling from ear to ear! ^__^

With so nice stamp, but it shows not so good on my blog:
The Round Kiwi (introduced 23 years ago) stamp is returning due to popular demand in 2011.The $1.90 Round Kiwi stamp has been printed in silver – reflecting New Zealand’s iconic silver fern.(Issued 16 July 2011)

''For the animal shall not be measured by man.In a world older and more complete than ours, they move finished and complete, gifted with extensions of the senses we have lost or never attained, living by voices we shall never hear. They are not bretheren; they are not underlings; they are other nations, caught with ourselves in the net of life and time, fellow prisoners of the splendour and travail of the Eart''

Henry Beston Quote From ------- The Outermost House
(From the back of the card)

In terms of survival, this species is one of the more successful: it has survived for millions of years and remains one of the most numerous of the large whales, despite centuries of hunting. It is the largest of the toothed whales and one of the more unique features is its unusual box like head that contains the largest brain in the world.Weight Male: 36000kg-Female: 20000kg~~ Lenght Male: average 10-15m Female average 8-11m.

The Sperm Whale was made famous by Herman Melville in his novel Moby Dick.
