The cannons in this next postcard used to protect Fort George, which was built by the French in the 17th century to defend against the British and the Spanish.

Stamp #1 shows the French anglefish. #2 depicts a Mourning cloak butterfly. The parrot in the third stamp is a blue-and-yellow macaw (yes, it's actually called so). The last stamp shows Oncidium Papilio, an orchid.
