Found this guy while cleaning out my gardens
Someone directed me here and told me that you had no pictures of the caterpillar.
He told me it belonged to the Hermit Sphinx Moth.

Moved- I linked and cropped your images
Moved from ID Request.

I had to remove the black borders as BugGuide does not allow for extra borders on submitted photos. I also linked the two images together because they appear to be of the same individual.

No problem on the removal of the border. I used my cell phone and instagram.
And yes....this is of the same specimen.
I realized when I uploaded the first one, that I could have added the other. But to late.....

That's the oneā€¦
