What's That Bug? does not endorse extermination

Any idea the name of this specimen?
Can you help identify this caterpillar recently found munching on goldenrod leaves. Thanks. You might also be interested in the attached shot of a Monarch caterpillar recently done in by the stink bug lurking in the shadows.
