What is this bug??
Dear Bugman,
I was in Maine for a week checking out the wildlife when I almost crushed a worm/silkworm of some kind while hiking. I could not identify this worm with the resources I have checked out thus far. The photo is attached. If you cant help thanks Bugman. If not thanks for you time.

Hi Eric,
Nice photo of an Luna Moth Caterpillar, Actias luna, one of the Giant Silk Moths. We get many images of the adult of this gorgeous green moth, but yours is one of the few caterpillar images.
