Tomato hornworm - felled by a braconid wasp


I haven't seen a tomato hornworm in my garden for many years (thanks to all the birds that we encourage, I hope). But this one, in an open hoophouse, in the community garden where I currently volunteer, was a surprise.

And happily, full of parasitoid egg cases from a braconid wasp

I enjoy hearing from fellow nature lovers and gardeners. Let me know your thoughts.
