For those who collect fauna on stamps, the one shown below would be a delight.

Issued for the Nature Protection of the Krivoklatsko Region on September 2, 2009, the pane above is one of four designs in the miniature sheet. The Krivoklatsko Region is among the UNESCO Biosphere reserves. The rest of this beautiful miniature sheet is shown here. Other animals shown are the CZK14 Bubo bubo (Eurasian eagle-owl), CZK10 Eudia pavonia (Emperor moth) and CZK12 (Red deer).
