I found this 5th instar of a Laurel Sphinx (Sphinx Kalmiae) caterpillar on a milkweed (Asclepias Incarnata) clump, while looking for Monarch caterpillars or chrysalises. Those caterpillars eat Lilac leaves but it was on the milkweed instead. However since there's a Lilac right beside the milkweed clumb, it might simply have wandered away.
