Creepy and crawly

I usually leave the photography of insects to Doug, but over the weekend I was at my grandmother's and spotted this dragonfly who was an agreeable model.This caught my eye too, I thought it was just a cluster of insect eggs on one of her tomatoes but when I came home to show Doug he pointed out that it's actually a horned tomato worm that is covered in parasitic wasp eggs. Crazy looking! I knew you could order the wasp eggs online to combat the worm destruction but I've never had any in my garden so I had no clue what they looked like. Creepy!
