60 fr: Giraffe against the sun, part of the 1981 wild animals of Niger issue. This is one of my favorite stamps ever issued by an African country, and shows the exquisite natural beauty of the continent in rich colors and detail. While fauna such as the giraffe is not as abundant in West Africa as in other parts of its range, important localized populations still exist.
