Amy found this caterpillar and I have no idea what it is but I'll find out!

It looks an awful lot like a Sycamore Moth, Acronicta aceris, but that's an English caterpillar. Browsing through photos of various other members of the genus tends to confirm my suspicions that this guy/gal is an Acronicta, but I'm not an entomologist and so will wait for expert input.

I couldn't find it either. It was eating Sassafras when I found it...
