sometimes you win

We’ve got a parasitic wasp attacking the tomato hornworm!
I’m so happy!
We’ve been organic & anti-pesticides for years and years, but sometimes you really feel like it’s an honorable fight, that you’ll keep fighting, even as you lose plants & produce.
And then something like this happens, and you’re reminded that the beneficial ones do eventually bail you out, if you’re able to wait.
I believe the wasp is a braconid wasp, called Cotesia congregatus, but would appreciate anyone’s POV. :-)
