@cleiper, I hope you are right. That's what I told myself last year and then picture #2 happened, and worse. It took me years to figure out it was thrips damaging my nectarines. I don't I know why the subject of the damage they do on their I and veg doesn't come up more. Then I found these examples of thrip damage on tomato leaves.


Got me thinking. Other pictures in my search focused on the small block speckles of thrip poop (frass), and I think I see that near the edges of the close up pictures of this year's leaves.
