Light Movements

Play of Lights

I love the light display as shown in the card. Also the movement created by the lights :)

About the stamp, The Aldabra giant tortoise (Aldabrachelys gigantea), from the islands of the Aldabra Atoll in the Seychelles, is one of the largest tortoises in the world. This species is widely referred to as Aldabrachelys gigantea, but has also been placed in the genus Dipsochelys as Dipsochelys dussumieri.

Adwaita, a male Aldabra giant tortoise, was reputedly one of four brought by British seamen from the Seychelles Islands as gifts to Robert Clive of the British East India Company in the 18th century, and came to Calcutta Zoo in 1875. At his death in March 2006 at the Kolkata (formerly Calcutta) Zoo in India, Adwaita is reputed to have reached the longest ever measured life span of 255 years (birth year 1750).
