dino eyes

Last week, it was an eye of a camera lens

this week it's an eye of a dinosaur - a reflection of one of it's own species, or the reflection in an eye of a predator



Troodon inequalis who roamed the Alberta Badlands 75 million years ago (mya)
Comox Valley elasmosaur was a marine reptile from the coast of Vancouver Island 83 mya
Acrotholus audetii was also from the Alberta Badlands around 84 mya
Cypretherium coarctatum was actually a mammal from Saskatchewan 35 mya
Dimetrodon borealis lived in  Prince Edward Island 370 mya

There is a good website here with lots more information
(click on those stamp images for a finely detailed view that I just could not get with my camera)

draw your own eyes over to See it on a Postcard for more D themed stamps

  2. Interesting - we spent time in the Alberta Badlands on our recent Canadian trip and found it fascinating.

    1. for some reason, we didn't include the badlands in our trip when I was 10. I probably had no say in the matter.

  4. Wow you wouldn't want those teeth coming into your eye line. Visually striking images, they will look great on an envelope.
