U.S. Postal Service Issues Garden Delights Stamps with Hummingbirds

Garden Delights Hummingbird Stamps

The U.S. Postal Service has issued its new Garden Delights stamps. The four Forever stamps celebrate the flora of America's spring and summer gardens. They also spotlight the vital role of hummingbirds in their pollination.

Each stamp showcases a female ruby-throated hummingbird hovering next to either a zinnia, cigar flower, spotted touch-me-not or sunflower. Ruby-throated hummingbirds (Archilochus colubris) are among the smallest hummingbirds. They weigh about as much as a penny and are about 3.5 inches long.

Greg Breeding, an art director for USPS, designed the stamps using existing photographs by wildlife photographer Ben King. A dedication for the stamps was held today in Strongsville, Ohio.
