Hong Kong Jellyfish FDC

Hong Kong Self-Drawing FDC
Name: Jellyfish
Date of Issue: 12 June 2008

Drifting gracefully with the currents, jellyfish exude the elegance of a dancer moving to the rhythm of ocean waves. This set of special stamps depicts six different species of jellyfish. For the first time, these stamps are printed with a luminous effect to juxtapose the gorgeous jellyfish against a contrasting dark background.

Brown Sea Nettle (Chrysaora fuscescens)
The name of the Brown Sea Nettle originates from the radiating brown stripes on their bells and the bee sting-like nematocysts. Feeding on microplankton and other jellies, they can grow up to 30 centimetres in diameter and live only for 2 or 3 months. Brown Sea Nettles occur in Japan and the Bering Sea.

Comment: This is my first self-drawing FDC, my Hong Kong friend is good at drawing. He often makes self-drawing FDC for his own collection. Perhaps he wrote the wrong address this time, and this FDC was sent to me. I'm so lucky! lol
