lynx, Finland

I decided to participate in the 'Kesä RR' ('Summer RR') in the Finnish postcrossing community on the forum this year. This was one of the first cards I received in that RR, and also one of the cutest.

Isn't it just adorable?! It's a little lynx baby. Lynx are quite common in Finland, and according to the Finnish Game and Fisheries Research Institute, he lynx population in Finland was 1900–2100 individuals in year 2008, and the number have been increasing every year since 1991. It has been estimated that lynx population in Finland is currently larger than ever before.

The stamp is from a set of 5 stamps issued earlier in 2010, representing countryside nostalgia. These stamps are so cute!
