The Floating Children, Hong Kong

My last card for today comes from Hong-Kong.

The name of the card is 'The Floating Children" and this is what the back of the card has to say:
The incredible tableau of traditionally dressed children seeming to fly in the air was part of the Hong Kong 10th Anniversary of the handover to China parade on July 1st 2007.

A very lovely and colourful card and also different than the majority of my HK cards, which in general are view-cards and sometimes I have the feeling that im seeing the same buildings on all of them.

And a bunch of lovely stamps on the card.
The birds' stamps all come from a set of 16 definitives issued in 2006 and here you can see the Kingfisher (the $1 stamp on the left side of the lighthouse), the Sea Eagle (top right corner) and below the Sea Eagle is the Minivet. The lighthouse stamp was issued in 2010 in a set of 5 stamps portraying lighthouses in Hong Kong. On this stamp you can see Cape D'Aguilar. Which now reminds me I have something nice to show off at my philatelic blog :)

Thanks a lot to Orange for such lovely card and stamps and thanks to all of you for following and reading. Have a great week ahead!
