a new bed and tobacco pests

The other day the fellers built a new garden bed down in the bowl area. There was excess dirt from where the stairs were carved out and this was the closest place that they could fit one in where there wasn't too much gravel to move first.
The tobacco is coming along quite well except for a couple of plants that looked like they had some funky disease. After a closer look at the underside of the affected leaves this is what I found
I have never seen a moth like this on the tobacco before. He was a big ugly bugger. It is time to start watching the tobacco closely for worms, moths, and other nasty critters .
