Tomato hornworm a.k.a. Manduca quinquemaculata

Tomato hornworm a.k.a. Manduca sexta

Farmer J spotted this tomato hornworm among the wilted ruin of frostbitten tomato plants this morning. We’ve had infestations of tomato fruitworm, but never a monstrous beast like this one. It was difficult not to be impressed by its size and beauty.  This specimen was well over two inches long, so it is clear he’s been in the neighborhood for awhile.
