Showcasing symbiosis Pollination USA

The us Postal Service has unveiled four stamps as a part of the North American Pollinator Protection Campaign Symposium. The beautiful stamps, to be released next summer, consist of four images arranged in two alternate and interlocking patterns.

The intricate design of these stamps emphasises the ecological relationship between pollinators and plants and suggests the biodiversity necessary to ensure the viability of that relationship."Farmers see the connection between plants and pollinators every day. Thanks to these stamps, this is illustrated for everyone else," says us deputy secretary of agriculture, Chick Conner.
