Real life Caterpillar

So, I’ve been painting anthropomorphic type caterpillar girls and this morning when I went out back to wash off the patio, this dude fell from the grapevine covering our pergola.  He is quite big I wonder if any one knows what kind of moth he will become. I wanted to pick him up to take a pic of the face but man I got the heebie jeebies.

    Hi Patricia,

    I decided to pull out a butterfly book while preparing tea for tea-dying and looked at the caterpillars.  None in that book matched your picture.  You might want to check out the Bug Guide  but it may also be fun to give the caterpillar a name of its own in honor of your caterpillar girls.
