Critters in the Tomatoes

I feel like I've been waiting on this particular tomato all summer [pictured left]. It's an heirloom breed I haven't grown before, and this particular plant only yielded a few blooms and this one tomato -- which I picked, with great enthusiasm, this morning. I love its beautiful heart shape, and when I saw the tiny seam running down the middle where it was just beginning to split, I was so relieved I had gotten to it in time.  But, here's what I found on the other side [pictured right]. Something obviously got there first.

Now, here I am preparing to guard the crops until first frost.
