Photos below - here's a couple of assassin bug photos, much like the ones that ribbit showed on her blog. This is a very good bug to have in the garden, because it holds it's prey with it's front legs - then plunges it's sharp syringe - like mouth part into it, while sucking the fluids out. Yeah....talk about carnage! Ha!
Photo below - I haven't identified this little fella yet, but it sure is cute! I left it alone, because it kinda looked like an assassin bug. I'll have to get verification from the local extension agent on what it is.....
Photo below - although this caterpillar is quite pretty, it eats tomato foliage like crazy. I've found about 20 of these on my tomato plants in the last few days.
Photo below - Here's a couple on death row. Ha!
Here's another one, that is called a tomato fruitworm, or corn earworm.
