Giant Cat…..er Giant Tomato Hornworm!


This Tomato Hornworm was hanging out behind our building, here in the park, munching on one of our tomato plants. Quite a fine looking specimen. It also enjoys snacking on other plants in the Nightshade family including eggplant, pepper, tobacco, moon flowers and potato.
