RICHMOND, Va. (AP) - The Virginia Department of Game and Inland Fisheries is set to begin selling the 2012 edition of the state migratory waterfowl conservation stamp.

The stamp features the work of Powhatan artist John Obolewicz, who depicts a pair of bufflehead ducks with the lighthouses of Cape Henry in the background.

This is the second time his work has been selected for the Virginia waterfowl conservation stamp. In 2009, his winning entry showed a drake ring-neck duck.

The game and fisheries board assembles a panel to make the annual selection.

The 2012 stamp goes on sale on July 1. The cost is $10.

Here's information on how to buy the stamp.
