Predators by night

We've looked and looked and looked, but only now, too late for most of the tomatoes, have we found two tomato hornworms. They had moved on to the various potted peppers, obviously subject to voracious consumption. Hornworms must be attracted to all members of the nightshade family. These were only about two-thirds grown. Always before, we've had enough tomatoes to keep them occupied. We removed them to the compost bin, where they will still find some potato plants.
