an unexpected intruder

In all my years as a neophyte gardener, I had never seen a tomato hornworm before.  It feels like a soft grub, it's skin dry.  We looked it up and it's moth is kinda cool looking.  Too bad.

Chris found this one, by our tomatoes. (go figure, right?)  It is only odd because the weather has changed, it is getting colder at night and the season in almost over.

I hope that it was not laying eggs. . .
