Nature: Pandas

The most popular photos in my Flickr album is those of the Panda bears. I received those postcards from Wuxi city, China. I included a link to the photographers site, a zoo photographer.

On December 7, a DVD with two PBS specials on Pandas will be released.
'Pandas of the Sleeping Dragon' and 'The Pandas Baby'.
A great gift idea.

Postcard from Belgium


One way for a photographer to be noticed is having their work printed on postcards.

Whenever I receive a postcard that includes the name of the photographer or a web site address, I check it out. For this card, the photographer is Kari Palsila

Nice web site, but no about page.

Postcard Swaps

Panda bear and baby
I received the postcards from my first direct swap with a Postcrossing member in China.

The cards are lovely enough to be framed. The photos on two of the cards were taken by Jesse Cohen, Zoo Photographer. The photos were taken at the Smithsonian National Zoological Park

You can view all four cards in my Wild Life set on Flickr

Postcard from Germany

Lady Bug Postcard

I received a few postcards recently and posted most of them in my Flickr album

No postcards with a copyright notice are added. Most do not include the name of the photographer, which is sad because many of them are very good. I include my website address on my own. Anyone can have their photos printed on postcards. Just visit my postcard gallery for ideas.
