This month's Creature Feature is a Hornworm. Hornworms are often considered to be damaging pests of tomato plants but since this one is feeding on a fast-growing Clerodendrum, I'll leave him be. As adults, Hornworms are known as Hawk moths or Sphinx moths.
The First Friday Creature Feature is a monthly event with a new creature every month. Check back next month to find out what other creatures are lurking in my garden!
