Looks like a young tobacco hornworm. They get even bigger and have a sweet horn on their butts. http://www.duke.edu/~jspippen/naturephotos/tomato-hornworm-braconids050916-6227durhamz.jpg

I've come eye-to-eye with a few on my cherry tomato plant. Xav and I watched one goggle a leaf before placing it on a tree away from the garden. They'd make a tasty meal on Survivor, I guess, they're a bit too mushy for me.

@ greg - Yes, I do, but that is a completely different blog that gets WAY more traffic.
