Well I did say it mimics flowers.

Yes it's an insect.

Your second last post contains a word that is also true, but in a false sentence.

I believe the conversation went something like

"Can you guess what this is?"
"Um..."
"You can post your reply on:..."

[:P]

Yes, I guess you could say it is the skin of something.

Not a flower.

I shall raise above the fray and insult each one in sequence. To obtain a larger number of posts I will not lump them all in one post.

Hey! I didn't mention old! That's JimBob!

I am above the median age - yet age is not a word that I am comfrotable with - it should be "experinced," "seasoned," "wiser than normal," etc.

I prefer one word that sums it all - "Venerable."

I am well aware, laddie, that we are onto the mammalian or fish eye - amphibians, reptiles, insects have been, eliminated.

HOWEVER - the fact that the grain of pollen was not mentioned. I thought it interesting and no stuffy pipsqueak of an Englishman is going to be allowed to run rampant on the subject of my posts.

There - I told him!!
