I found this little guy crawling in my backyard September 2009. Took some pictures of him and put him in the garden. What is it?
Though the caterpillar is highly variable in coloration and markings, we are quite certain that this is the caterpillar of the Achemon Sphinx, Eumorpha achemon. You may compare you photo to images posted to Bugguide.
