Beetles, Bugs and Beasties Competition

Beetles, Bugs and Beasties designed and judged by local artist Sally Black. This competition is open to Isle of Man residents only. If you live off Island, you can always do it for fun, but sorry, no prizes.

As the days get longer and hopefully warmer, there is a lot to see in the great outdoors. If you have a garden, it is the perfect place to spot insects, birds and other garden creatures. There are over 60 different species of bee found here and at least 12 species of ladybird. Not all “bee looking” insects are bees (or wasps). There are 19 species of butterflies here and Manx Wildlife Trust (MWT) does an ID chart to help identify them.

To enter the competition:

  1. Download Sally’s beautiful illustration and colour it in.
  2. Create your own drawings of insects.
  3. Add your Name, Age and Contact details including email.
  4. Scan or photograph both and send them to:
