Sep 26, 2013: White-lined Sphinx Caterpillar

Markings of the White-lined Sphinx caterpillar can differ considerably, depending on the climate.  All the ones I have seen at the Park appear like this one.  In late Summer and early Fall they are often seen migrating along the ground on their way to finding the perfect soil in which to stage their next metamorphosis. 9/24/13 (Wolf. Oesterreich)
