This caterpillar was just parasitized by a tachinid fly. There is a small dark spot where it struck. The tachinid fly hovered about for a short time.
The garden is about half an acre of native plants specifically planted for wildlife. The main water source is a pond that is filtered by two gravel streams. It is on a peninsula by Lake Lewisville.
