#1133 Australian Antarctic Territory 17/10/01

On December 19 I received this beautiful cover from the Australian Antarctic Territory. It was cancelled on October 1 at the Davis Station, many thanks to the postmaster of Davis!

The stamp set was issued on March 7, 2017. It is entitled “East Antarctic Deep Sea Creatures” and depicts the Antarctic sea star (Odontaster validus), the Antarctic neosquid (Alluroteuthis antarcticus), a Pogonophryne ssp. and Antarctic pink anemone (Urticinopsis antarctica), and the Dorid nudibranch (Tritoniella belli) and deep sea coral.
