My First Cover from the Philippines

I was really delighted to receive this mail from Manila, the capital city of the Philippines.  Myron franked the envelope with 3 distinct stamps: the P2 one on the far left shows the Red Pencil Urchin (Heterocentrotus mammillatus) found throughout the tropical waters of the Indo-Pacific region, the P7 stamp depicts the famous Orange Clownfish (Amphiprion percula), and the P26 one illustrates the different stages of the flowering of the Rafflesia manillana, a parasitic plant endemic to the Philippines.  The last stamp is the largest one I have ever received.

Thank you Myron!  =)
