Sighting Record 1235381

Observation Notes: 
Huge caterpillar found crawling across the road. Northeastern NY, in the Adirondack Mts. I've never seen these before this year but this is the second one I've seen in a month. I included a photo of my foot with it just for a size reference. Not the greatest photos when you enlarge them . Sorry they're so blurry. All I had was my cell phone!

Had suggested Grapeleaf Skeletonizer but checking guide books, this moth seemd closer to 20mm, so changing to Yellow-collared Scape Moth. I thought it was a type of firefly at first glance.
