Yes, it will be some kind of sphinx moth. Not a tomato or tobacco hornworm, but similar. The single sharp horn-like tail on a hairless caterpillar is diagnostic.

Very nice finding Sue and very well captured. :D
Agree with Rik. The same horn-like tail as on my caterpillar Hyles euphorbiae euphorbiae.
The meaning of beauty is in sharing with others.

P.S.
Noticing of my "a" and "the" and other grammar
errors are welcome. :D

Pretty neat critter here Sue. I like the skin texture and markings, sort of reminds me of myself. Liverspots and all wrinkled up I guess :-k

This was found on a tobacco plant. My Amish neighbor donated this to me. They know I like to take photos "of these things"..
