My husband found this on his maple tree.
We’ve never seen a caterpillar this big.
Our neighbor said it’s a monarch but your page is looking like imperial moth

Dear Amy Jo,
Your identification of this magnificent Imperial Moth Caterpillar is correct, and judging by its size, it will soon spin its cocoon.
Thank you. Its the prettiest caterpillar I’ve ever seen. I’m checking our trees for more! Lol
