Subject: What kind of bug is this

We found this caterpillar on our porch. We are wondering what kind species it is. Thanks.
Do you have a nearby ash tree? This looks like the Hornworm of a Great Ash Sphinx, Sphinx chersis, and we are basing our ID on the curved blue horn. You can compare your image to this BugGuide image, though we believe the difference in coloration may be due to the proximity of pupation time for your individual.
