our "pet" tomato hornworm

tomato hornworm, originally uploaded by hobbitsmama.

Took this out of our garden in caterpillar form and here is it forming a chrysalis. Afterwards it turned all brown and hardened. Still waiting to see if the moth will emerge. And not sure what to do if it does since we don't want it to go lay eggs and destroy more tomatoes, eggplants, etc. But still interesting to watch the process .. just not as pretty or beneficial as our usual monarch chrysalis process.
