Found this gorgeous creature lurking around our compost ashes. There are some absolutely amazing things in this world. Moths and Caterpillars are among my favorites!

Just saw this little booger in the garden.

The white cocoons are the pupae of the Braconid Wasp. These wasps are parasitic insects that prey on hornworms. They will hatch and seek out more tomato worms and eat them!
