Can you see the culprit?

I call the first few shots beauty in the beast. There is no doubt there is real beauty in the camouflage of this little fella.

You can stare right at them and completely miss them.

I don't mind them eating some foliage, but this year they seemed to have a real taste for the green fruit. Many years I only have a couple and I will let them be, they are very beautiful in their way. Nice pictures!

Surprisingly, I spotted my first ever hornworm this summer, and I saw it on the top of my tomato plant from 50 feet away. I think it was more the big lump on a thin branch that give it away though.

I hear you. This year I had some in my tomatoes and found one in my peppers. They can do a lot of damage in a hurry.
I found another one just this morning and I have been looking for him for several days.

Pro-Tip: Hornworms glow umder blacklight just like scorpions. Makes finding them a piece of cake after dark.
