Hornworm with parasitic wasp cocoons

1 post in this topic

Found this guy in one of the tomato plants. Seems he's being eaten by parasitic wasps. These tiny wasps were laid on the worm, then make cocoons and feed of the worm until they hatch. Doesn't look as if worm is going to become that moth it's striving to be.
