This caterpillar was either preparing to mold or to pupate. It was firmly attached to a branch, as shown in photos #3 and #4.
Lovely! It's an Automeris caterpillar but I've no idea which one. I'm sure bayucca can narrow it down further for you! Hopefully you know not to touch this species as it stings!
