Show & Tell Caterpillar

This one was in the raspberry, I don't think I have seen one like this before. The black is like our black Salamander color.

It would be nice if you can I.D. them.

This one is feeding on Saskatoon leafs.

Pachysphinx Modesta, about to pupate? Here's a link, scroll down and there is a picture taken in Vegreville of the pre-pupa stage, that looks very similar to your bug.

We found a White-marked Tussock Moth caterpillar today - it fell out of an ash tree into our picnic so we brought it home to hopefully pupate. I'm using my mesh cold-frame with ash boughs in it and the caterpillar is eating so that's a good sign. :0)
