Is it good to represent a newsletter subscription form with captcha in the front page?

I need form my front page to be as simple as much as I can. I can hide it and let it shown in a popup panel or another page, the two solutions are somehow complicated to the subscriber, without mentioning the mobile. so I am between two solution both are not so good.

    What is the single primary goal of this page? To get newsletter subscribers or to display your Lorem Ipsum content? Also, is there a specific reason you need a CAPTCHA tool for subscribers? – Benjamin S May 28 '15 at 21:19
  • this is the landing page ... the primary goal of the website is to build a scientific hub between scientist in some filed like Agriculture for example. The reason I put a CAPTCHA is to limit the robotic attach over the email server. – hsawires May 28 '15 at 21:32

A potential solution for keeping the homepage clean is to have the subscription form expand (with animation) when it gains focus, thus displaying the captcha.

And when the user clicks on the text field:

As soon as the user enters or focus leaves the subscription box, it can shrink back down. This guarantees the homepage is clean, yet contains all the functionality you want.
