Hello Folks!Be they big or small, insects are undoubtedly highly fascinating creatures. Chances are wherever you are, whatever you're doing, an insect is not a million miles away and you might not even know it! So what better reason than to have a quiz to see how much you know about them.
Each Monday for 12 weeks, I will be posting a little teaser for you. Without looking in books or on the internet (i.e - no cheating), see if you can identify the insect. On Wednesday, so as long as no-one has guessed it, I will post one clue. On Friday I will post the answer along with some additional information for your interest.MYSTERY INSECT QUIZ#11A leaden Captain.
Ooh anagram I think. I may be some time....
Caroline in Jersey
Could be an insect beginning with grey
Just working on the captain bit
One or two moths in this catagory
Grey arches etc
a good laugh is better than a tonic
No good at anagrams, it just makes me think of Captain Peacock (Are you being served?) I can't get him out of my head now to think of anything else lol (The answer being Peacock butterfly by the way!)
Its grey and a captain pepper
Think we need a clue Mrs T
Clue tomorrow folks.
The captain that came to my mind was Captain Pugwash!
I'm sure I can remember there being a Pug Moth, so.. I wonder.. is there a Grey Pug Moth?
A thing of beauty is a joy forever.
Clue: only five letters in my name appear once, the rest appear twice.

Blimey riley MrsT!!! Absolutely no idea!! Lol!

More like a rocker than an insect but 'metalhead' fulfills the criteria.
What about one of the Skippers maybe Grizzled Skipper
Going hospital visiting, will check later
I like that, Ray, fits the clue well.
All will be revealed tomorrow...
Certainly fits both clues Ray! Well done!
