The previous two stamps are from a set, completed by these three.  They are all on one sheet, as shown below.  Bubo bubo, known as the Eurasian Eagle-owl, is a large owl, with a wingspan of up to 2 metres.

下の写真はこのポストのトップから3枚の切手と前回、前々回のポストの切手をあわせたシートです。一番大きく描かれているワシミミズクは大きいフクロウで、翼を広げると2メートルになるものあるそうです。
