Dear Andriv,
I am not an expert in American caterpillars but I am sure that is from the genre Papilio. Maybe Papilio polyxenes.
This is a genre of very nice butterflies.

Best regards and Merry Christmas

Looks like Black swallowtail caterpillar (parsleyworm)
Order: Lepidoptera
Family: Papilionidae
Genus and species: Papilio polyxenes Fabricius

Great shot!
Very good capture - well composed with fantastic color. :)
