Each stamp features a processional statue from different churches around Malta. The one on the right is from Mosta, the middle from Mġarr and on the left from the Zebbug Parish Church in Gozo.

Owls from Poland

From a sheet of four. This is a snowy owl. It's printed on fluorescent paper so the whole stamp glows under UV light and the eyes are slightly embossed.

Ouyen, Australia

Ouyen is a small town in north-west Victoria. Home to a little over 1000 people. The bottom stamp is a Christmas Island Christmas stamp from last year. The other two stamps are also 2017 Christmas stamps which at first did't look all that special. But the images on the stamps are photos taken during the annual "Lights of Christmas" event at St Mary's Cathedral in Sydney, where lights and images are projected onto the face of the Cathedral during the month of December.
