#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.

Thank you, Pauline, for this beautiful cover with 2007 mini-sheet, which commemorates the 60th anniversary of the Bureau of Fisheries and Aquatic Resources. The two stamps of this mini-sheet depict a cuttle fish, the bigfin reef squid (Sepioteuthis lessoniana), and the sacol green (Kappaphycus sp.).
