Another Dead One!

Okay, I should not be so excited about this. But look!!!

I would not even have seen that hornworm were it not for the many wasp caccoons on it. Another wasp nursery, yay! Yes, it's gross. Weird. Gives me the heeby-jeebies. But hey, I won't complain about the help these wasps will give me in protecting the tomatoes, this year and next.

Once again, we will LEAVE IT BE! We'll work around this macabre dead beast as we harvest our tomatoes. We want those cacoons to hatch and boost the population of braconid wasps. If only I didn't feel so queasy after looking at it...
