P9101018 Wiggling

When I switched from aperture priority to manual I didn't realize I couldn't use Auto ISO, whose maximum I had set at 800, so this picture got taken at ISO 3200! Pretty darned good for a non dslr, I think. This tomato hornworm is preparing to pupate as evidenced by two days of wiggling and no eating. He's been transferred to a jar of soil, in which to burrow and hopefully spend the winter, so next spring he can emerge as a moth (who hopefully won't lay eggs on my tomatoes and eggplant!)
