Default Holes in Tomato Leaves

Can anyone tell me what's eating my tomato leaves?

I can see your pics.
I have a few nibblers. On my lower leaves I get some flea beetles that are never so
destructive to hurt the plants. They destroy my hearty greens like kales so I use row
covers...
Another one is the tortoise beetle that is minor as well. I just pic them off.

Best to try and check often and catch the destroyer in action for a positive ID.

Most nibblers like the hornworms/army worms take a bit more of a bite and work fast.
Usually from the outside of the leaf and work in. More destructive.

Are those lower leaves or upper?

Earwigs do that as well,not a huge problem, plants usually do just fine.
