May someone please identify this caterpillar for me? I have tomatoes growing very close to the nasturtium on which this caterpillar is on; so I'm wondering if it is a tomato hornworm. I have seen quite a few of these things now and have killed about 5 or so now, if they are harmless to plants please may someone tell me so that I may stop killing them.

Cabbage White. Nasturtium can be planted as sacrificial fodder.
