photographing and learning about wildlife
This tobacco horn worm was on my tomato plant outside my back door and was covered with parasites. The white cocoons which are the predatory Braconid Wasp. This worm was about 3" long and looked healthy but was doomed because of the wasp eggs laid on it and never would have survived. I didn't know that it is a good thing to let the wasps continue to hatch and in fact you can buy these wasps for your garden. If I had known about project noah when I took this photo I would have take a lot more.
