    They're a five spotted hawk moth. It's the final stage of the dreaded tomato horned worm.

    Theyve been super devastating some years for us. Funny ive not seen the cool moth. Might make dealing with the worms easier.

    They're a pain in the ass. It's unbelievable how well they blend in. I had one tomato plant that was nothing but stalks when I pulled it off. Easily 5". Ten minutes later I went outside and looked it over. Found another one just as big. Completely missed it the first time. With nothing to even hide it.
