Observation Notes: 
This caterpillar was found in the grass, the temperature was about 85 degrees and the sun was out. I unfortunately do not have any pictures of it on the exact plant it was found on as I did not come across this site til I was looking for some identification on it. It wasn't in a bush or a tree or anything.
