North Dawu Mountain Ridge

Catching A Birds-eye View of Pingtung Plain on the North Dawu Mountain Ridge
TW-303926 was sent by Meng Ying(LinMengYing), from Yunlin, Taiwan. It travelled 1,018 km or 633 miles in 16 days.

There's a much clearer postcard of this one which is better:

Aphrodisium faldermannii yuagii
 About these stamps..
these beetles are either yellow-brown or green. Those with yellow-brown coloration have glossy nota, with a black stripe running down the middle, and they have black legs and yellow tarsi. Those with green coloration have inconspicuous lengthwise stripes on their green elytra. The species is found in mixed forests between 1,500 and 2,000 meters above sea level. Because it emits a musky smell, it is also called the “musk long-horned beetle” in Chinese. Source
