The aliens have been here all along - we just didn't know what to look for. The tops of my tomato plants were sticks today and some of the green tomatoes were half eaten. Squirrels! Had to be. So I started looking at my plants and found this big guy munching away. It is bigger than my thumb. Needless to say, I removed it to a sunflower and it immediately tucked its head down and played opossum. Unlike Great Grandma Merriot, who used to pinch them, I released this Tomato Horn worm into a patch of volunteer tomatoes. It will grow up to be a Sphinx Moth.
