Beautifully ugly

A brown tomato hornworm, they are quite rare. This is the first one I’ve seen. So gross yet totally amazing and weirdly beautiful. Yuck! And Cool! All at the same time.

Not unlike my life now, beautifully ugly.

*UPDATE* My friend Laura K’s dad researches insect biochemistry. He says this caterpillar is “a mutant with a juvenile hormone deficiency”.
