This Magnificent Creature…

…was utterly devastating one of the tomato plants. It had already consumed about the top eighth of it, having already eaten all of the leaves of that part of the plant, and it was starting in on the stems as well. It’s the larvae of some kind of Sphinx Moth. I figured if it could eat tomato plants, it might do ok eating other kinds of Nightshades, so I took it far away from the tomatoes in the side garden and put it in amongst the Horse Nettles in the lower garden. Hopefully it is happy there
