      THE FOUR Bs BUZZ
      Bats, bees, birds and butterflies featured on new Pollinator stamps
       
      USPS will cast a spotlight on the importance of nature’s pollinators
      with today’s issuance of the 41-cent Pollination stamps.
       
      The first-day-of-issuance ceremony will be led by Deputy Postmaster
      General Pat Donahoe. He will be joined by Agriculture Secretary Mike
      Johanns at the U.S. Department of Agriculture.
       
      The Pollination stamps are being issued in conjunction with National
      Pollinator Week. Depicted on the Pollination stamps are four wildflowers
      and four pollinators.
       
      Artist Steve Buchanan of Winsted, CT, created the four stamps using an
      intricate design that emphasizes the ecological relationship between
      pollinators and plants and the biodiversity necessary to maintain that
      relationship. The four different stamp designs are arranged in two
      alternate blocks that fit together like interlocking puzzles. In one
      block the pollinators form a central starburst — in the other block the
      flowers are arranged in the center.
       
      Starting today, the stamps can be purchased online at the Postal Store
      on www.usps.com/shop, by calling toll-free 800-STAMP-24, at philatelic
      centers nationwide and at local Post Offices. For additional information
      on National Pollinator Week, visit www.pollinator.org.
