The Hornworm, Destroyer of Crops

While the hornworm makes for a great portrait (and I thank him for his cooperation), he is a great destroyer of crops and the bane of many a farmer, particularly tomato growers. The hornworm is a caterpillar that, after growing to three or four inches long and leaving a trail of leafy carnage in its wake, will take to a cocoon  and sprout wings.
