Cover from Spain no. 9

This is a lovely airmail cover in the best tradition, sent from Barcelona, Spain, with a complete set of two mycology stamps which were issued on 16 October 2009 in 320,000 copies. The left-hand mushroom is Boletus pinophilus (pine bolete), in Czech hřib borový (yum!), the right-hand one is Cantharellus cibarius (chanterelle), in Czech liška (= fox). Both also very popular and widely used and eaten here.

Muchas gracias, David!!

Wow! Those are amazing stamps! How do you collect them? I mean, how do you get so much mail with such spectacular stamps?
