bee and fly


1962, Spain

There are many Bee and Beekeeping themes on stamps – and some depict bees correctly and others don’t. This bee has 4 wings – correct! That means the previously featured British stamp was not.

In fact, some flies have stripes on their bodies and they look like bees, but they have only two wings and that is how you distinguish them from bees. However, they rarely stop to show the numbers of wings to us.
