Kurt,

This is one of the Eumorpha sphinx moth. I'm not sure which one though. I'll check tonight at home.

if you
happened to collect it, and bring it in...looks like a prepupal sphinx caterpillar, one of these.. you could place it between a couple layers of paper towels and see if it makes it. I don't see any serious injury on it so it could of just gotten lost trying to dig in.

 
Thank you both,
For your help with this caterpillar.
