I believe this is the caterpillar of the Polyphemus Moth. The photo is a tad bit overexposed, thus some of it's markings seem to be lost. I will try a WS to see if it will recover some of the markings.
The one thing I have noticed about these caterpillars is that they almost seem to have a glowing appearance to them. I have found them on Oak trees and they are so bright lime green that they are easily seen against the leaves.
