I have been wondering why I haven’t seen any tomatillos yet in our garden.
I think I found the reason yesterday.  This guy was huge!  And happily munching away on tomatillo buds. 
He had a super-strong grip, but I got him off my dad got him off the plant.  If you look close, you can see the “thorn” on the back of him (look on the left side of the picture).  I wasn’t about to touch him!

    Ok I kinda think he is really pretty. Is that weird?

    Then my next thought is of Alice in Wonderland (it is on a constant loop over here!)…"Who are you?" Well maybe if he were purple!

    He (she?) reminds me "The Very Hungry Caterpillar."

    (It IS a caterpillar, right?)
