Hornworm Devouring my Tomato Plants, Fultondale

Several months ago, I notice that my tomato plants were being ravaged by some critter, but I could not seem to find the culprit for some time.

Initially, I suspected grasshoppers, as I had intermittently seen them grazing on my plants, but this appeared to be a much more systematic approach.

And then I spied this fat, well-fad monstrosity of a hornworm, engaged at that very moment in the act of feasting on my tomato plants. So I did what any gardener would do: I took a few photographs of him, then I ended him.
