Aw....they look like little angels. Not the hornworms - the kids. The first photo is unfortunately very hard to make out. Grab your user manual for your camera, and try to find the page that is discussing using macro, or super macro. That's the key to making a good closeup photo.

yes, just slice off the bad parts and eat the good. My wife and I have been doing that for YEARs and never got sick on a tomato yet.

LOL and at the price of tomato's these days!! WHEW!! and if some reason we do get sick we can just chug a 1/4 cup of acv and we'll be good to go!! i did that after we ate at sirloin steak house and i ate some very bad crab meat. and i told the manager it was bad, he said he tasted it and it was good. well i started getting the rumbly tummy and all, started feeling REALLY sick, so as soon as i got home i downed it, later the belching and boom!! all better!! not a trace of sickness!! but of course i live by the acv cure!! LOL the girls in my MNF round robin swear i have an vinegar affair. LOL i say it cures everything!! inside and out,, also witch hazel is a good one for the mosquito bites that don't sting!! LOL talla gets them so much and freaks MOM NO!!! IT STINGS!!!! so i have tochase her down!! LOL now its cool!! LOL no itching afterwards!! LOL ~Medo
