We stepped out onto the porch after sunset and saw a huge shadow cast by a flying critter, and when it finally landed, we were thrilled to see this Carolina Sphinx.  We moved it to the primrose patch and away from the disorienting porch light.  Unlike some home gardeners, we generally allow the larval Tobacco Hornworms to continue munching on tomato leaves, but we haven’t seen any yet this year.
